Chamorro lyrics


Fanohge Chamorro put it tano'-ta

Kanta i matuna-na gi todu i lugat

Yu'os prutehi i islan Guam

Kontra i piligru na'fansafo' ham

Anthem Lyrics English

Stand ye Guamanians for your country

And sing her praise from shore to shore

For her honor, for her glory

Exalt our island forever more.

For her honor, for her glory

Exalt our island forever more.

May everlasting peace reign o'er us

May heaven's blessing to us come

Against all perils, do not forsake us

God protect our isle of Guam.

Against all perils, do not forsake us

God protect our isle of Guam.

Guam Flag

Flag History The blue stands for the Pacific Ocean. The seal is in the shape of a sling shot used by the ancient Chamorros for hunting and warfare. It is the symbol of protection and endurance of the home government. The seal depicts a typical landscape in Guam, seen from the mouth of the Agana River. The lonely coconut palm tree escaped being uprooted during the destructive typhoon of 1918 and symbolizes perseverance, courage, strength and usefulness (coconut is the main crop of the island). In the distance is “Two Lovers' Point” which represents faithfulness to a good cause. According to legend, two lovers preferred to kill themselves by jumping from the Point rather than be forced to marry someone they didn't love. The outrigger canoe recalls the fame of the native people, the Chamorros, for their nautical skills. It stands for bravery and skill in making the best of one's environment.
