In 1822, on the banks of the Ipiranga River, in So Paulo, Dom Pedro I proclaimed Brazil's independence from the Portuguese Empire. The famous cry Independence or Death! marked the beginning of the organization of the colonial country of Portugal since its discovery in 1500 as it is not an empire. The date is traditionally celebrated with patriotic parades in several Brazilian cities, with emphasis on what happens at the Esplanada dos Ministrios, in Braslia.

Remember the Doodle story
This is the 12th consecutive year that Google celebrates the Independence of Brazil with a special Doodle. Since 2006, the search engine has presented illustrations and animated arts that involve the national flag or cultural and natural features of the country, such as the wealth of fauna and flora and football, for example.

The history of the Doodles, however, began in 1998, along with the rise on Google. The first one was created by the searcher's founders, Larry and Sergey, who played with the company logo to indicate that they were going to participate in the Burning Man festival. Since then, two thousand Doodles have been shared. Ranging between images made by artists, animations and even games, the special versions of the searcher's logo celebrate birthdays, honor characters and highlight various subjects.
