Flag Day, celebrated annually on November 19, is a tribute to the Brazilian flag, which was created soon after the Proclamation of the Republic, on November 15, 1889. Thus, Flag Day became celebrated only after the Proclamation of the Republic. Since the new Brazilian flag was presented on November 19, 1889, this date was chosen as Flag Day.
The Brazilian Army had been dissatisfied with the monarchy since the end of the Paraguayan War. The military did not feel valued enough by this form of government and demanded, for example, improvements in the promotion system. There was also dissatisfaction with some measures, such as forbidding military personnel to express political opinions. The Proclamation of the Republic was a movement led by the Brazilian Army, which, in a coup, ousted the ministerial cabinet and forced the royal family to leave Brazil.
