  • Coat of Arms Description: Brazil's coat of arms is fairly straightfoward in its interpretation. The branches, from left to right, are coffee and tobacco; these were two staple crops of the country.

    The stars in the center make up the constellation the Southern Cross. The twenty-six stars surrounding the Southern Cross represent the 26 districts of Brazil. Some important information is written on the blue banners near the bottom of the coat of arms. The first is the official name of Brazil. The second is the date of the republic's beginning.
