National anthem of Puerto Rico

The lyrics of the National Anthem of Puerto Rico

La Borinqueña

La tierra de Borinquén
donde he nacido yo
es un jardín florido
de mágico primor.

Un cielo siempre nítido
le sirve de dosel
y dan arrullos plácidos
las olas a sus pies.

Cuando a sus playas llegó Colón
exclamó, lleno de admiración:
¡Oh!, ¡oh!, ¡oh!,
Esta es la linda tierra que busco yo;

Es Borínquen la hija,
la hija del mar y el sol,
Del mar y el sol, del mar y el sol.
Del mar y el sol, del mar y el sol.

The Borinquenian

The land of Borinquén
where I was 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;
he exclaimed full of admiration
Oh! Oh! Oh!
This is the beautiful land that I seek.

Borínquen 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.

The National Anthem of Puerto Rico was written by Manuel Fernández Juncos and composed by Félix Astol Artés.

Puerto Rico has not an official motto.
