"Independency or Death!"

Painting Independence or Death, by Pedro Américo, depicting the Cry of Ipiranga on 7 September 1822, with prince Pedro's Guard of Honor greeting him in support while some discard blue and white armbands that represented loyalty to Portugal.

September is a very important month for Brazilians! Aside from other beloved holidays like Childrens' Day & Nossa Senhora Aparecida Day, we celebrate our Independence!

The independence of Brazil comprised a series of political and military events that led to the independence of the Kingdom of Brazil from the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and the Algarves as the Brazilian Empire.

It is celebrated on 7 September, the date when prince regent Pedro of Braganza declared the country's independence on the banks of the Ipiranga brook in 1822 on what became known as the Cry of Ipiranga.
