  • Further details: It was selected as the most suitable entry in a public competition. The text is by AUGUSTO CONSTANCIO COELLO (1883-1941). The composer was CARLOS HARTLING (1869-1920), an ardent Honduran patriot of German descent. He organized the first symphony orchestra in Central America and a number of military bands in the larger communities of his country.

    The National Anthem is characteristically South American, but the German background of its composer cannot be concealed.
