"Hymn to the Fatherland" (gr.:Υμνος στην Πατριδα),is the national anthem of the Republic of Saint Christopher.

History

During the times of the Autonomous Student's Republic of 7th High School, the anthem of the Antarctic Micronational Union was used in special occasions, such as before a meeting of the "Council of 15", and every morning at 9:00 am, it was played through megaphones.

When the Principality of Quintarea was declared independent, a new anthem was adopted, simply known as "The National Anthem of Quintarea" (Εθνικος Υμνος της Κινδαρεας), and it was set in the music of "Veillons salut au l'Empire", the national anthem of the First French Empire.

When the Kingdom of Saint Christopher was declared, a new national anthem was needed. So, General Triantafyllos, proposed "Hymn to the Fatherland",in the music of "Koniggratzer marsch".The anthem was used during the times of the monarchy, and also now as the official national anthem.
