Östergyllen / Song of the County of Östergötland
So fair stands Östergyllen in summer beauty’s splendour,
and its harvest of gold that swells up.
A hundred white church towers keep watch across the plains,
beside the lake’s glittering waves.
No one is so lovely, as sunny as our clime, 
where old memories sleep in the shade of green birch trees, 
our childhood home, our gorgeous Östergyllen!
Swedish text by Sten Granlund (1871-1917)
