The Borinqueña is the national anthem of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. The current music and lyrics were written in 1903 and since then has been taught in schools and was adopted by most people. The music was made official by the government as the national anthem in 1952, and the letter in 1977. The title refers to the aboriginal Taíno name for the island of Puerto Rico, which was Boriken or Borinquen.
Christopher Columbus arrived at Puerto Rico in 1493.
