Did you know that?
- One single star stands above the motto as it represents the only state (Pará) that straddles the Equator.
- The motto: Order and Progress is inspired by Auguste Comte's motto of positivism: "L'amour pour principe et l'ordre pour base; le progrès pour but" ("Love as a principle and order as the basis; progress as the goal").
Here are some fun things you can do with the Brazilian flag with your kids:
