Brazil flag

The national flag of Brazil is a symbol of the country's identity and unity. Its green field represents the lush forests and natural beauty of Brazil, while the yellow rhombus represents the country's wealth and prosperity. The blue circle with white stars represents the sky over Rio de Janeiro on the day of the Proclamation of the Republic, which marked the end of the Brazilian Empire and the beginning of a new era for the country.

The stars in the blue circle represent the 26 states and the Federal District of Brazil, each one corresponding to a specific geographic size. The stars are arranged in the pattern of the night sky over Rio de Janeiro on the day of the Proclamation of the Republic. The motto “Ordem e Progresso,” which means “Order and Progress,” is a reminder of the values that have guided Brazil's development and the importance of working towards a better future.

Throughout its history, the national flag of Brazil has undergone several changes, with the most recent occurring in 1992 when four new stars were added to represent the states of Amapá, Roraima, Rondônia, and Tocantins. Despite these changes, the flag has remained a symbol of Brazil's unity and national identity, and it is proudly displayed by Brazilians at home and abroad.
