"I am Belize" caravan coming to San Pedro

Share

The Belize Tourism Board (BTB) is embarking on a new local public awareness campaign entitled “I am Belize”. The “I am Belize” campaign seeks to educate and sensitize Belizeans how individual actions impact the country’s image. As a part of this campaign, the BTB is now embarking on the next step which is the “I am Belize” caravan. The caravan will be travelling from district to district to see how patriotic Belizeans are by asking them to sing the Belize National Anthem. If they can do this without making any mistakes they are given a cash prize of $50.00.

Look out for the “I am Belize” caravan in San Pedro Town TODAY.

The National Anthem of Belize
“Land of the Free”

O, Land of the free by the Carib Sea,
Our manhood we pledge to thy liberty
No tyrants here linger, despot must flee
This tranquil haven of democracy
The blood of our sires which hollows the sod,
Brought freedom from slavery oppression’s rod
By the might of truth and the grace of God.
No longer shall we be hewers of wood.
Chorus: Arise! Ye sons of the Baymen’s clan,
Put on your armors, clear the land!
Drive back the tyrants let despots flee – Land of the free by the Carib Sea!

Nature has blessed thee with wealth untold,
O’er mountains and valleys where prairies roll;
Our fathers, the Baymen, valiant and bold
Drove back the invaders; this heritage hold
From proud Rio Hondo to old Sarstoon,
Through coral isle over blue lagoon;
Keep watch with the angels, the stars and moon;
For freedom comes to-morrow’s noon.
Chorus: Arise! Ye sons of the Baymen’s clan,
Put on your armors, clear the land!
Drive back the tyrants let despots flee – Land of the free by the Carib Sea!
