A estrela Espiga , situada acima da faixa branca, representa o estado do Pará , que, à época da proclamação da República, era o Estado cuja capital, Belém , era a mais setentrional do país. As estrelas do Cruzeiro do Sul representam os cinco principais Estados de então: São Paulo , Minas Gerais , Rio de Janeiro , Bahia e Espírito Santo . O Distrito Federal , inicialmente na cidade do Rio de Janeiro , e em 1960 transferido para Brasília , foi representado pela estrela sigma da constelação do Oitante , também chamada de Polaris Australis ou Estrela Polar do Sul , por situar-se no Polo Sul celestial (em contrapartida a Polaris , situada no Polo Norte celestial ). Apesar de ser pouco brilhante e estar próxima ao limite de visualização a olho nu, essa estrela tem uma posição única no céu do hemisfério sul , pois é em torno dela que todas as estrelas visíveis giram. A posição e dimensões exatas de cada componente da bandeira são definidas em lei, bem como a associação das estrelas das constelações com os estados do Brasil. [nota 2] As duas faces da bandeira são exatamente iguais, sendo vedado fazer uma face como avesso da outra.

Despite the fact that são Paulo is an industrial city, it has many parks but the main one is Ibirapuera
As expected, football is the most practiced sport in Brazil. São Paulo has got many footballl teams, like Santos (Pelé’s team), Corinthians, Palmeiras and others. Lots of famous players, like Ronaldo, Rivaldo, Kaká played football in one of those teams.
Lots of people remember about RJ when they talk about BR. However, the most bealtiful beaches are in the Northeast Coast.
