World Cup 2014 is moving into the playoffs tomorrow and all eyes are on Brazil. There is quite a lot of reporting on the country at the moment and in one of them, it was explained what the colours of the Brazilian flag actually mean:
– Green represents the forests of Brazil.
– Yellow symbolises Brazil’s mineral wealth.
– Blue represents the sky over Rio de Janeiro on 15 November 1889 – the day the Republic of Brazil was declared.
I found that really interesting and was thinking that Green – Yellow – Blue would actually make an interesting colour block combination, too.
