Brazil Flag

The explanation for the symbols of the Brazilian Flag

The flag of Brazil has not changed much since 1889 and the declaration of the Republic. It consists of a green colour in the background, reminiscent of the natural wealth of the country, home to much of the Amazon rainforest. A yellow diamond stands at the center of the frame offset, and represents the mineral wealth, mostly gold, of Brazil. A blue globe finally trones in the center. It is dotted with 27 stars, including 26 under the central belt, which features the national slogan of Brazil: Ordem e progresso (Order and Progress), which is also the one of positivist philosophical theory from Auguste Comte. Emperor Pedro 1st is imagined in 1822 the first Brazilian flag with green and yellow, country's wealth’s symbols. The latter, on wich no globe was represented, was raised for the first time of the independence of Brazil. The stars are based on the sky that could be seen in Rio de Janeiro November 15, 1889 at 8.30 AM on the exact time of the proclamation of the Republic. It recalls the following constellations: Hydra, Carina, Octant, Big Dog, Little Dog, Scorpio, Virgin, Southern Triangle and the Southern Cross, very present on the flags of the southern hemisphere. In Brazil, each state corresponds to a star, very strong symbolic for this hardly religious state. District of Brasilia, the capital, is also represented on the flag.
