The current version of the anthem was re-written in 1978 by a four-person committee at the government’s request before the anthem was adopted officially, seemingly because the original lyrics were too colonial in nature: Lanta nos bos ban kanta grandesa di Kòrsou; Kòrsou, isla chikitu, baranka den laman!(Let's raise our voice and sing the grandeur of Curaçao;Curaçao, small island,a boulder in the sea!

Lyrics of Curacao National Anthem
