The Brazilian flag was adopted in 1889 to replace the flag of the Braganza-Habsburg dynasty. The green field and yellow rhombus from the previous flag were preserved, but the previous flags' coat of arms was replaced with a blue circle with 27 white stars, each representing a different Brazilian state and the Federal District. The banner on the blue circle states the country's motto: Ordem e Progresso
, or Order and Progress.
This flag is made from durable 200-Denier nylon that has been treated to resist fading. The flag is finished with a 3 in., flannel-lined pole hem with Velcro hang tab and bordered with gold rayon fringe. Its image is dyed, single-sided, and reversed on the back. This flag is suitable for indoor or parade use.
This flag is used by Brazil's government and displayed at the U.N. Headquarters in New York.
