The Brazilian flag : the national treasure
We can all agree that the Brazilian flag is one of the most iconic flags in this world.
Brazilians are so proud of it that you can see it everywhere on the streets and even on the notorious Havaianas.
History of this national symbol of Brazil: the Brazilian flag
This Brazilian symbol, as we know it nowadays, was introduced in November 19th 1889 for the declaration of the Brazilian Republic.
Characterised by a green and yellow background, it is one of the most recognisable and unique flag on the world.
Indeed, more than 60% of national flags are composed of red and blue.
The Brazilian flag: symbol of national identity
The first Brazilian flag was introduced in 1822, date of the Independence of Brazil.
At first the green and yellow symbolised the colours of the royal house, governor of Brazil: green of Bragance and the gold of Habsbourg.
Nowadays these colours have a totally different maning: the green of Amazonia and yellow for the Brazilian gold.
The blue disc is composed of 27 stars, which represent the sky of Rio de Janeiro the night of November 15th 1889 at 8.30pm for the declaration of the Brazilian Republic.
The 27 stars represent the Federal States and the Federal District of Brasilia.
In the middle of this blue disc, you can read the Brazilian motto: Ordem e Progresso quote from August Compte, ambassador of the positivist though.
O amor por princípio, e a ordem por base, o progresso por fim, meaning: progress comes from the development of the order.
A star is added to the flag for every new state, the last one was added in 1992.
