Really, Brazil? This one didn’t remind you of something? Hmmm. 13 stripes. They must stand for the original 13 colonies or colonias, maybe. Oh wait… And the stars on a blue field in the upper left corner… God, I know I’ve seen that before, but where? At least they had the good sense to change it. I guess as a new nation state, you had a couple of things to worry about other than flag design. If there had been a Brazilian equivalent to Betsy Ross, she was a total fraud. Look how lazy she was with the stars. And kind of a tramp, too I heard (the Carnivale costume… and all) But that’s neither here nor there.
