'Cant del Barça', the Catalan Anthem of Barcelona Football Club is one of the most famous songs in Catalonia. Children learn it at school and parents insist they know the words. Its almost as if Catalans are obliged by law to learn this anthem!


The song was written in 1974 as part of Barcelona's 75th Anniversary Celebrations. The lyrics are by Jaume Picas and Josep M. Espinàs and it is set to the music of Manuel Valls Gorina


On November 27, 1974, and as part of the Club's 75th Anniversary celebrations, 'Cant del Barça', was solemnly sung for the first time by 3,500 voices conducted by Oriol Martorell.

una bandera ens agermana: . One flag unites us in brotherhood

blau-grana al vent, . Blue and claret flowing in the wind
un crit valent, . One valiant cry

tenim un nom, . We’ve got a name
el sap tothom: . that everyone knows:

Barça! Barça! Baaarça!



Jugadors . Players,

Seguidors . Supporters
tots units fem força: . United we are strong

són molts anys plens d´afanys, . So much glory through the years
són molts gols que hem cridat, . Oh, the many goals we’ve cheered

i s´ha demostrat, s´ha demostrat, . And it has been proven, it has been proven
que mai ningú no ens podrà tórcer: . That no one can break us

Blau-grana al vent, . Blue and claret flowing in the wind,
un crit valent, . One valiant cry

tenim un nom, . We’ve got a name
el sap tothom: . that everyone knows:
