What are some of the famous patriotric hymns/verses about Bharatavarsha found in Hindu scriptures?


Yes, there are several patriotic hymns Hindu Scriptures.

Yajurveda 22.22 states:

आ ब्रह्मन् ब्राह्मणो ब्रह्मवर्चसी जायतामा राष्ट्रे राजन्यः शूर इषव्योऽअतिव्याधी महारथो जायतां दोग्ध्री धेनुर्वोढानड्वानाशुः सप्तिः पुरन्धिर्योषा जिष्णू रथेष्ठाः सभेयो युवास्य यजमानस्य वीरो जायतां निकामे निकामे नः पर्जन्यो वर्षतु फलवत्यो न ओषधयः पच्यन्तां योगक्षेमो नः कल्पताम् ॥

English Transliteration: A brahman brAhmaNo brahmavarchasI jAyatAmA rAShTre rAjanyaH shUra iShavyo&ativyAdhI mahAratho jAyatAM dogdhrI dhenurvoDhAnaDvAnAshuH saptiH purandhiryoShA jiShNU ratheShThAH sabheyo yuvAsya yajamAnasya vIro jAyatAM nikAme nikAme naH parjanyo varShatu phalavatyo na oShadhayaH pachyantAM yojakShemo naH kalpatAm ||

English Translation: O the Supreme Lord of the world, in this country of ours, let the Brahmins rise as a community of brilliant men of divinity and illustrious scholars of universal knowledge. Let the Kshatriyas rise as a force of heroic warriors of the chariot and the routers of the enemy with unfailing arrows. May the cows be fertile and abundant in milk, the oxen, carriers of heavy load and coursers be swift; the woman, kind and generous; and may the children (people) of the yajamana; the ruler, be brave and fearless, the victorious riders of the chariot, youthful and civil members of the government. May the clouds rain in showers for us according to the need of the season. May the herbs and trees mature and ripen with abundant fruit. And maybe this land be securely blest with a ceaseless cycle of growth and protection of happiness and prosperity.

Srimad Bhagavatam 5.19.21 states:

एतदेव हि देवा गायन्ति— अहो अमीषां किमकारि शोभनं प्रसन्न एषां स्विदुत स्वयं हरि: । यैर्जन्म लब्धं नृषु भारताजिरे मुकुन्दसेवौपयिकं स्पृहा हि न: ॥ २१ ॥

English Transliteration: etad eva hi devā gāyanti — aho amīṣāṁ kim akāri śobhanaṁ prasanna eṣāṁ svid uta svayaṁ hariḥ yair janma labdhaṁ nṛṣu bhāratājire mukunda-sevaupayikaṁ spṛhā hi naḥ

The Devas said: How wonderful it is for these human beings to have been born in the land of Bharatavarsha. What pious acts of austerity they may have executed the past, for Hari himself is pleased with them. In all humans, those who are born in Bharatvarsha, are so fortunate that they have already executed themselves in devotional service of Mukunda. Therefore, we the Devas, always aspire to achieve human births in Bharatvarsha.

The Vishnu Purana Canto 2, Chapter 3 states:

In Jambu-dwípa, Vishnu, consisting of sacrifice, is worshipped, as the male of sacrificial rites, with sacrificial ceremonies: he is adored under other forms elsewhere. Bhárata is therefore the best of the divisions of Jambu-dwípa, because it is the land of works: the others are places of enjoyment alone. It is only after many thousand births, and the aggregation of much merit, that living beings are sometimes born in Bhárata as men. The Devas themselves exclaim, "Happy are those who are born, even from the condition of Devas, as men in Bhárata-varsha, as that is the way to the pleasures of Paradise, or the greater blessing of final liberation. Happy are they who, consigning all the unheeded rewards of their acts to the supreme and eternal Vishńu, obtain existence in that land of works, as their path to him. We know not, when the acts that have obtained us Swarga shall have been fully recompensed, where we shall renew corporeal confinement; but we know that those men are fortunate who are born with perfect faculties in Bhárata-varsha. From this region Swarga is obtained, or even, in some cases, liberation from existence; or men pass from hence into the condition of brutes, or fall into hell. Swarga, emancipation, a state in mid-air, or in the subterraneous realms, succeeds to existence here, and the world of acts is not the title of any other portion of the universe."

In the Valmiki Ramayana 6.124.17B, Sri Rama says:

जननी नन्म भूमिश्च स्वर्गादपि गरीयसी

English Transliteration: jananī janmabhūmiśca svargādapi garīyasī

English Translation: Mother and motherland are far superior to even Swargaloka.

By the way, this verse is also incidentally the national motto of Nepal.
