Puerto Rico National Anthem
The Borinquen Song (La Borinquena)

Lyrics
The land of Borinquen
where I have been born
is a flowery garden
of magical beauty.

A constantly clear sky
serves as its canopy
and placid lullabies are sung
by the waves at its feet.

When at her beaches Columbus arrived
full of awe he exclaimed,
“Oh!, oh!, oh!, this is the lovely land
that I seek”

Borinquen is the daughter,
the daughter of the sea and the sun.
Of the sea and the sun,
of the sea and the sun,
of the sea and the sun,
of the sea and the sun.

Flag History

The resemblance of this flag to that of Cuba is no coincidence, since the two were designed
