"Pátria" (English: "Fatherland") is the national anthem of East Timor. It was originally adopted when East Timor unilaterally declared its independence from Portugal in 1975. However, this usage would be short-lived, when the country was invaded by Indonesia. It was officially re-adopted when the independence of East Timor was restored in 2002 following a United Nations intervention.
The music was composed by Afonso Redentor Araújo, and the words were written by the poet Francisco Borja da Costa, who was killed at the time of the invasion. It was originally sung exclusively in Portuguese, however, there is now a Tetum version.

Ita manán hasoru kolonializmu, ita hakilar:
Vencemos o colonialismo, gritamos:
Bá oin hamutuk, laran-metin no barani.
Avante unidos firmes e decididos.
