Brief History

Brazil’s tradition of having a state flag goes back as far as the 14th Century. Prior to their independence in 1822 when Brazil became a kingdom, Portugal were the governing country.

This can clearly be seen in the early flags that were used which tended to change when a new governor took office. Independence in 1822 was closely followed by it becoming an Empire and then in 1889 a Federal Republic. The official flags of those times are indicative of the changes that took place.

After a number of iterations the flag as we know it today was developed in 1889. A fairly unique design the constellation stars on the globe represents each state in the federation and the band circumventing the globe has the country’s national motto “Ordem e Progresso” (Order and Progress) written in green around it.

The green in the flag is a representation of the Brazilian rainforest and the yellow represents the country’s mineral resources.

The flag is regularly updated with the latest change being in 1992 when more stars were added to the globe.

Naval Jack of Brazil

For a short period of time (1992 – 2003) Brazil had a Navel Jack that was flown on military ships.

It was a rectangular flag with a ratio 3:4 bearing 21 white stars on a dark blue background. The stars were laid out with a horizontal row of 13 and a vertical column of 9.

Coat of Arms of Brazil

The coat of arms of Brazil was established in 1889 4 days after the country became a republic.

The design consists of wreaths of coffee and tobacco (important crops in 1889). The blue circle in the centre is surrounded by 27 star – one for each of the 26 states and one for the Federal District.
