The lyrics of the Anthem of Azores

Hino dos Açores

Deram frutos a fé e a firmeza
no esplendor de um cântico novo:
os Açores são a nossa certeza
de traçar a glória de um povo.

Para a frente! Em comunhão,
pela nossa autonomia.
Liberdade, justiça e razão
estão acesas no alto clarão
da bandeira que nos guia.

Para a frente! Lutar, batalhar
pelo passado imortal.
No futuro a luz semear,
de um povo triunfal.

De um destino com brio alcançado
colheremos mais frutos e flores;
porque é esse o sentido sagrado
das estrelas que coroam os Açores.

Para a frente, Açorianos!
Pela paz à terra unida.
Largos voos, com ardor, firmamos,
para que mais floresçam os ramos
da vitória merecida.

Para a frente! Lutar, batalhar
pelo passado imortal.
No futuro a luz semear,
de um povo triunfal.

Hymn of the Azores

Bore fruits, faith and strength
in the splendour of a new chant:
the Azores are our certainty
for the glory of a people.

Forward! In communion,
for our autonomy.
Freedom, justice and reason
are kindled in the high light
of the flag that guides us.

Forward! To struggle, to battle
for our immortal past.
In the future to cast the light,
of a triumphant people.

Of a destiny with dignity achieved
we shall pluck more fruits and flowers;
’cause it’s this the sacred sense
of the stars that crown the Azores.

Forward, Azoreans!
For peace united with land.
High flights, with passion, we draw,
so that may flourish the branches
of deserved victory.

Forward! To struggle, to battle
for our immortal past.
In the future to cast the light,
of a triumphant people.

The Anthem of Azores was written by Natália Correia and composed by Joaquim Lima and Teófilo Frazão.

The Azores have not an official motto.
