Flag Day in Brazil has its origins related to the creation of the current design of the national flag. On November 19, 1889, four days after the Proclamation of the Republic, Marshal Deodoro da Fonseca, then head of the provisional government, instituted through Decree No. 4 the new model of the Brazilian flag.

The date of November 19th was officially established as Flag Day by Decree-Law nº 5,695, of September 2nd, 1971. This choice aims to commemorate the adoption of the flag as a national symbol and highlights the importance of this representative element for the identity and unity of the country.
