March of the Malvinas

The Marcha de las Malvinas (March of the Malvinas) is a patriotic anthem of Argentina. It is sung in demonstrations to assert Argentina sovereignty claims over the Falkland Islands and was prominently broadcast by the military government-controlled media during the Falklands War . On March 3, 1948, it was premiered by the Argentine National Symphony Orchestra.

The lyrics were written by the Argentine poet Carlos Obligado and the music was composed by Jose Tieri. They won a 1939 contest organised by the Junta de Recuperacion de las Malvinas (Malvinas Recovery Commission).
