The national symbols of Peru have a deeply founded root in the country's history and represent what is unique about the nation. The Peruvian flag and the national anthem for example reflect different aspects of the cultural life and history. The official symbols of Peru are established by law and are part of the Political Constitution of Peru (Article 49).
After Peru declared its independence in 1820, General José de San Martín began a public contest to select the National March, which was published on the 7th of August 1821 in the Gaceta Ministerial (Ministerial Gazette). After hearing all the presented compositions, they selected the last production of Master José Bernardo Alcedo.
