Banner o Brazil

Frae Wikipedia, the free beuk o knawledge

The naitional banner o Brazil (Portuguese: Bandeira do Brasil) is a blue disc depictin a starry sky spanned bi a curved baund inscribed wi the naitional motto, athin a yellae rhombus, on a green field. Brazil offeecially adoptit this design for its naitional banner on November 19, 1889, replacin the banner o the seicont Empire o Brazil. The concept wis the wirk o Raimundo Teixeira Mendes, wi the collaboration o Miguel Lemos, Manuel Pereira Reis an Décio Villares.

The green field an the yellae rhombus frae the previous imperial banner wur preserved – the green an yellae colors representin the Braganza-Habsburg dynasty.[1] A blue circle wi 27 white five-pointit starns replaced the airms o the Empire o Brazil. The starns, whose poseetion in the banner reflect the sky ower Rio de Janeiro on November 15, 1889, represent the union's federatit units – each starn representin a specific state. The motto "Ordem e Progresso" ("Order an Progress") is inspired bi Auguste Comte's motto o positivism: "L’amour pour principe et l’ordre pour base; le progrès pour but" ("Love as a principle an order as the basis; progress as the goal").[2]
