Color meanings Gender Roles What people do Brazil's flag is a deep green banner with a yellow diamond enclosing a night-blue, star-studded Southern Hemisphere sky. The sky depicts 27 white, five-pointed stars (one for each state and the Federal District); the stars are arranged in the pattern of the night sky over Rio de Janeiro on November 15, 1889 (this is the date when the last Emperor of Brazil, Dom Pedro II, was deposed, and the republic was proclaimed). The stars in view include the constellations Southern Cross (also called Crux), Scorpius, Canis Major and others. A banner across the sky reads, "ORDEM E PROGRESSO," which means "order and progress" in Portuguese.

This flag was adopted on May 11, 1992 - it was an adaptation of an earlier Brazilian flag from November 15, 1889.

Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro (meaning River of January in Portuguese) was reached by Portuguese explorers in an expedition led by Italian Amerigo Vespucci in January of 1501. Europeans at first thought the Bay of Guanabara was the mouth of a river, they called it "Rio de Janeiro". Rio is one of the highlights of Brazil. Some of the things that make it such a great place to go is the O Cristo Redentor statue (the giant Jesus statue), the Sugarloaf Mountain, Copacabana Beach, and the night life.

While your in Rio you must stay for the once a year event Carnival. Carnival is the event of the year, it's the Brazilian’s moment of glory. Nothing, absolutely nothing, can match this 6 day long party from sunrise till sunrise. This party is much bigger than Mardi Gra. The streets are packed with people during carnival. Trucks or Trio Eletricos pass by with bands playing music on top of them. If you like what you hear just join the masses dancing behind the truck and just samba along. Drum bands (blocos) parade in the city, while small samba combos appear everywhere. The experience is amazing.
The family is the foundation of the social structure and forms the basis of stability for most people.
Families tend to be large (although family size has been diminishing in recent years) and the extended family is quite close
Work opportunities for women are varied and available depending on social class.
Women are still expected to do most if not all of the cooking and cleaning Man greeting Man - Men shake hands when greeting one another, while maintaining steady eye contact. At a first meeting a handshake will suffice but it usually lasts slightly longer than the typical North American handshake. Hugging and backslapping are common greetings among Brazilian friends.

Man greeting Woman - If a woman wishes to shake hands with a man, she should extend her hand first. It is common for men and woman to exchange kisses on the cheek when first meeting in social situations. This is often accompanied with a touch on the arm and shoulder. Some Brazilians kiss one cheek, but most kiss two or three times (alternating cheeks).

Woman greeting Woman - Women generally kiss each other, starting with the left cheek and then switching to the right cheek. Some kiss one cheek, but most kiss two or three times (alternating cheeks).
Most things that people tend to do are in groups.
Weekdays : Most of a teenagers time is spent outside playing sports, hanging by the pool, or walking with friends. Very common sports to play are Soccer and Volleyball. It is normal for teenagers to go out on weeknights to party and go hang out with their friends. It is not uncommon for teens to go to clubs since there are many teen clubs even in small cities.
Weekends : On the weekends teenagers continue to go out and party it up. Parties usually start at about 11:30-midnight and will go until 5 the next morning. The inverted American “OK” sign is an obscene gesture.
Making a fist with one hand and slapping the top of it with the other once or twice means screw you and "I got screwed" or "I screwed up".
Rubbing the two index fingers of each hand together indicates close friendship between two people.
Gently pulling the lower eyelid down can indicate "watch out, be careful” or "do you think I'm stupid enough to believe that?"
Thumbs up means OK, cool, positive, good-luck, thanks, you're cool, I agree. Thumbs down means the opposite.
Holding your hands in front of your body with your wrists loose and brushing your fingertips across each other means I don't care or I don’t know, depending on the situation.
Pretending to suck your thumb means that one has been left out or is disappointed. This presentation was created by Marco Castro
