The Brazil flag was introduced in November 1889 shortly after the Proclamation of the Republic. The flag features a midnight blue coloured circle depicting a starry-night sky, which is placed on a yellow rhombus and then a green background. The blue disc in the middle includes a text inscription that states ‘Ordem e Progresso’, which is translated to mean ‘order and progress’.

Our recommendation for your flag is hand sewn national flags. Using 155gsm woven flag material that has been approved by the Ministry of Defence, these flags offer the best durability and have been used by the Navy and other military branches for years.
To create the official Brazil pattern, our skilled flagmakers cut panels of the required colours from a roll of fabric, and then sew them together to create hand-sewn Brazil national flags. For national flag designs with complex details, a printed panel or badge is added to the main field.

The colours used in the Brazil flag were each chosen with meaning. The green and yellow are a gesture to the previous national flag, in which those colours were chosen to honour the first Emperor and Empress of Brazil. The sky in the centre of the flag was chosen to represent the sky over one of Brazil’s largest cities, Rio de Janeiro. The stars featured are based on constellations and shown as they would be on a celestial globe.
