Dia dos Símbolos Nacionais
(Brazilian Symbols). The four Brazilian symbols are: the flag, the emblem, the hymn and the seal. Why are these national symbols so important? A government website explains about every symbol:
Flag: The flag symbolizes an obtained or requested protection. Who carries a flag, has to keep it above his head. On this way, the flag bearer launches a request to heaven, a kind of connection between heaven and earth. The flag bearer hopes for heavenly intervention. The flag later became the symbol of protection by its ‘owner’: the feudal lord, the general, the head of state, the saint, the organization, the country. The flag serves as a moral protection for what the flag represents.
Emblem: The emblem (or shield) is an anti-monster that is able to change into a monster at his turn, when it is not used in the combat against the enemy, but as domination of the friend. The shield therefore is an instrument for justice AND oppression. The shield follows the direction, the aim of his master. Some shields symbolize functions: the bludgeon, the baton, and the whip symbolize the power of a leader; the lance, the sword, the bow, and the arrow symbolize the power of a warrior; the knife, the dagger, and the spear symbolize the persisting hunter; the lightning and the rays are symbols of supernatural powers.
Seal: The seal was essential in early eastern civilizations. The kind pressed his seal on the documents bearing his decrees. It was a symbol of authority and power, an authorization that generally was recognized and respected. The seal also provided protection to documents that were about to be revealed at a later time, like last wills. Sealing therefore gained the significance of ‘closing, keeping for later’, the symbol of secrecy.
Hymn: In ancient times, it was assumed that music was a harmony between the numbers and the universe, and that this universe could be reduced to musical numbers. By making music, the musician was able to contact the universe. In all civilizations, music has become one of the most essential elements of life; music in the form of hymns, songs, melodies.
Inauguration of TV Tupi, the first tv channel in Latin America.
Thanks to the efforts of Francisco de Assis Chateaubriand Bandeira de Melo. He was owner of Diários Associados, publisher of newspapers, and a radio station. Francisco was responsible for the first broadcast on April 3, 1950, but this broadcast only was visible within the building of Diários Associados. On September 18, TV Tupi went on air, with the program ‘TV na Taba’. In order to have a representative number of spectators, Assis Chateaubriand imported about 200 televisions from the United States, and distributed them in São Paulo. In 2001, the ‘Dia da Televisão’ was introduced by law.

Design of the National Symbols of Brazil.
Dom Pedro I signed three decrees: the first three political activities of young independent Brazil. One of the decrees was about the flag and the emblem: ‘The emblem of the Brazilian empire has to be on a green field, with a sphere, on which the Cross of the Order of Christ and in the border a blue circle with nineteen silver stars: a king’s crown with diamonds. The emblem must be flanked by the plants of coffee and tobacco, emblems of the natural richness of our nation […]’.
“O Brasão de Armas do Brasil Reino serão, em um campo verde, uma esfera armilar sobreposta em uma cruz da Ordem de Cristo a esfera do ouro circulada por 19 estrelas de prata em um círculo azul; e uma coroa real com os diamantes ajustados sobre o protetor, os lados de que embracado por duas plantas do café e do tabaco, como emblemas de seus [ riquezas do reino ], em suas cores apropriadas e serão amarrados no fundo com o fitão nacional.”
Surrender of the Paraguayan armed forces in Uruguaiana, Rio Grande do Sul.
Since 1864, Paraguay and Brazil were at war with each other. Argentina and Uruguay joined Brazil, they formed the Triple Alliance. Paraguayan troops invaded the state of Mato Grosso, and the north of Argentina, and started the attack on Rio Grande do Sul. In Uruguaiana the Paraguayan army was forced to surrender. This phase was the only moment that emperor Pedro II visited the war zone.
