Explore and Remeber Brazil
By: Kevin Okoye
Brazil was once controlled by the Portuguese. The Portugese had control for three centuries. It gained independence in 1822. Now a days the country is independent. It's capital is Brasilla. Also the Brazilians have created a flag, the flag had a blue globe on it. The globe has 27 white dots each dot represents a state or district in Brazil. The way that the stars are arranged is the way they were on the morning of independence. The royal family fled the country of Brazil and left Don Pedro in charge. The Cortez's pushed Pedro away until he had no responsibility in Brazil. So eventually in September 7, 1822 Pedro declared its independence from Portugal without his fathers approval.
