Pledge to the Guatemalan Flag (translation follows)

by Guatemalan poet Alberto Velasquez

Bandera nuestra,
a tí juramos
devoción perdurable,
lealtad perenne,
honor y sacrificio y esperanza
hasta la hora de nuestra muerte.
En nombre de la sangre y de la tierra
juramos mantener tu excelsitud
sobre todas las cosas,
en los prósperos días y en los días adversos;
velar y aún morir
porque ondees perpetuamente
sobre una patria digna

Translation

Our flag
To you we pledge
Lasting devotion
Constant loyalty
Honor, sacrifice and hope
Until the time of our death.

In the name of blood and the land
We pledge to keep your highness
Over all the things,
In the prosper days and adverse days
To vigil or even die
For you to perpetually wave
Over a worthy country
