Stand Ye Guamanians
|English: Stand Ye Guamanians|
Territorial anthem of Guam
translation: Lagrimas Untalan
Stand Ye Guamanians (Chamorro: Fanohge CHamoru), generically known as The Guam Hymn, is the regional anthem of Guam, adopted in 1919. The English lyrics and music were written in English by Ramon Sablan, the first CHamoru medical doctor and a CHamoru rights activist. The CHamoru translation was the work of Lagrimas Untalan in 1974, amid a resurgence in pride at CHamoru language and culture. The later version enjoys wider usage today.
As a United States dependency, the official national anthem is still the "Star Spangled Banner", which is always played before the Guam Hymn on official occasions. The Guam Hymn, however, is played alone at international sports competitions.
