The Marcha de las Malvinas (in English: March of the Malvinas) is a patriotic anthem of Argentina. It is sung in demonstrations to assert Argentina sovereignty claims over the Falkland Islands (on Spanish: Islas Malvinas) and was prominently broadcast by the military government (controlled media during the Falklands War).

On March 3, 1948, it was premiered by the Argentine National Symphony Orchestra.

The lyrics were written by the Argentine poet Carlos Obligado and the music was composed by José Tieri. They won a 1939 contest organised by the Junta de Recuperación de las Malvinas (Malvinas Recovery Commission).

Lyrics[edit]

Spanish lyrics English translation

Tras su manto de neblinas
No las hemos de olvidar
Las Malvinas Argentinas
Clama el viento y ruge el mar

Ni de aquellos horizontes
Nuestra enseña han de arrancar
Pues su blanco está en los montes
Y en su azul se tiñe el mar

Por ausente, por vencido
Bajo extraño pabellón
Ningún suelo más querido
De la Patria en la extensión

¿Quién nos habla aquí de olvido
De renuncia, de perdón?
Ningún suelo más querido
De la Patria en la extensión

Rompa el manto de neblinas
Como un sol, nuestro ideal
Las Malvinas Argentinas
En dominio ya inmortal

Y ante el sol de nuestro emblema
Pura, nítida y triunfal
Brille "¡Oh, Patria!" en tu diadema
La perdida perla austral

Para honor de nuestro emblema
Para orgullo nacional
Brille "¡Oh, Patria!" en tu diadema
La perdida perla austral

Brille "¡Oh, Patria!" en tu diadema
La perdida perla austral

Behind their misty quilt
We won't forget them
The Argentinian Malvinas
The wind cries out and the sea roars

From those horizons
Our ensign won't be ripped either
As its white is on the hills
And the sea is tinted on its blue

For absent, for defeated
Under a strange flag
No land is more wanted
Of the Fatherland as a whole

Who's talking us here of neglect
Of renouncement, of forgiveness?
No land is more wanted
Of the Fatherland as a whole

Break off the misty quilt
As a sun, our ideal
The Argentinian Malvinas
Under an already immortal dominion

And facing the sun of our emblem
Pure, distinct and victorious
Shall it shine "Oh, Fatherland!" in your diadem
The lost Southern pearl

For honor to our emblem
For the national pride
Shall it shine "Oh, Fatherland!" in your diadem
The lost Southern pearl

Shall it shine "Oh, Fatherland!" in your diadem
The lost Southern pearl
