La bandera blanca y verde
English: The Green and White Flag
Regional anthem of Andalusia
Lyrics Blas Infante
Music Sevilla José del Castillo Díaz

The National Anthem of Andalusia lyrics were written by Blas Infante, the father of Andalusian nationalism. They were adopted under the Statute of Autonomy of Andalusia[1]. The music for the anthem of Andalusia was composed by the former director of the municipal band of Sevilla José del Castillo Díaz. The origins of the music are vaguely inspired on the Santo Dios, a religious cantic widely spread in rural Andalusia, usually sung by peasants while reaping their crops. It is believed that Blas Infante suggested the music to José del Castillo. The melody of the anthem is Castillo's original though. After the Spanish Civil War, the original music scores were destroyed, and only a manuscript for piano is conserved. The composer Manuel Castillo improved José del Castillo's version.

Lyrics of the Anthem of Andalusia

Spanish lyrics: Blas Infante

La bandera blanca y verde
vuelve, tras siglos de guerra,
a decir paz y esperanza,
bajo el sol de nuestra tierra.
 
 
¡Andaluces, levantaos!
¡Pedid tierra y libertad!
¡Sea por Andalucía libre,
España[2] y la Humanidad!
 
 
Los andaluces queremos
volver a ser lo que fuimos
hombres de luz, que a los hombres,
alma de hombres les dimos.
 
 
¡Andaluces, levantaos!
¡Pedid tierra y libertad!
¡Sea por Andalucía libre,
España y la Humanidad!

English lyrics:

The Green and White Flag
returns after centuries of war
to tell of Peace and Hope
under our Land's sunshine.
 
— Chorus —
Andalusians, Stand up!
Demand Land and Freedom
for a free Andalusia,
Spain[3] and Mankind.
 
 
We, Andalusians, want
to become once again
People of Light who to Mankind
gave a Human Soul.
 
— Chorus —
Andalusians, Stand up!
Demand Land and Freedom
for a free Andalusia,
Spain and Mankind.
