Flag of Brazil (GIF)



The flag of Brazil (Portuguese: bandeira do Brasil) is composed of a green field with a large yellow diamond bearing a blue disk in the center. The blue disk forms the celestial sphere, surrounded by a white equator-curved strip, which depicts the starry sky of twenty-seven little white stars with a green slogan. The national slogan on the ribbon is "ORDEM E PROGRESSO" ("ORDER AND PROGRESS").

The green color represents the first Emperor of Brazil, and the yellow color represents his wife. The blue circle with white five-pointed stars replaced the coat of arms of the Brazilian Empire. The stars represent the Brazilian states and the Federal District. The height-to-width ratio of the flag is 7:10. The current version of the flag was adopted on May 11, 1992.

The central shield of the coat of arms, surrounded by coffee and tobacco branches, Brazil's main crops, features the Southern Cross and the star ring, representing Brazil's 26 states and the Federal District.

The Brazil flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the globe.
