Photographer's Note

Brazilian flag has a design very different most part of the others, where strips of color are very usual.
The colors of the flag has a republican meaning: green is the vegetation, gold our minerals, blue the sky and white is the peace.
Anyway the original flag was created by a French artist, named Debret.
The colors green and yellow came from the imperial flag of Brazil, created in 19th century and with the colors of the Bragança and Hapsburg dynasties, instead of the blue globe there was an imperial coat of arms.
When republicans took control they put a Positivist motto: order & progress. The stars, disposed in constellations, mean each state of Brazil.
This flag is located in the higher part of my town. I will show some of the real constellations you can see in the flag soon.

A bandeira brasileira tem um desenho diferente da maioria das bandeiras, onde se usa muito as faixas coloridas.
As cores da bandeira tem um significado republicano: as matas, os minérios, o azul do céu e a paz. Contudo, a bandeira original foi criada por Debret, um artista francês, no século 19, quando o verde e o amarelo da bandeira imperial significavam a dinastia dos Bragança e dos Habsburgos e ao invés do globo azul tínhamos o brasão imperial.
Quando os republicanos tomaram o governo puseram a esfera com as estrelas significando os estados, distribuidos em constelações, e adicionaram a faixa com o lema positivista: Ordem e Progresso.
Essa bandeira está na parte mas alta da minha cidade, daqui alguns dias mostrarei algumas das constelações de verdade que aparecem nela.
