The Brazilian flag was officially adopted on Nov. 19th 1889, four days after the Republic was proclaimed.
The green color represents the Brazilian fields. The yellow losang represents Brazilian gold - and, by extension, the wealthiness of the country. The blue represents the sky of Rio de Janeiro on the night of Nov. 15th 1889; each star represents one of the Brazilian States.
The white strip contains the inscription "Ordem e Progresso", meaning "Order and Progress". The phrase is attributed to the French positiviste philosophe Augusto Comte, who had admirers in Brazil.
The dimensions and proportions of the flag are determined by Law nr. 5700.
The flag was designed by a painter named Decio Vilares. To read more about the History of the flag, as well as the identification of each star, visit this site.

Brazil's National Flag

Interestingly, the colours of the Brazilian flag are not specified in any sort of legal document. This is usually done to ensure continuity and a level of integrity to the national flag (as well as any logos or specialised fonts). This means that, when printing flags or items that carry the flag, designers are free to use colours that are simply close approximations to the original.
