The flag of the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais consists of a red equilateral triangle surrounded by the words “LIBERTAS QUÆ SERA TAMEN” on a white background. Red represents revolution and the triangle represents the Holy Trinity of Christianity. The red triangle is a symbol for the region that dates back to 1789, when there was national conspiracy to revolt against the crown that did not come to fruition. The words around the triangle, “LIBERTAS QUÆ SERA TAMEN”, translate literally to “Liberty Will Be Also” but is often translated to meaning “Liberty, Although Late”. This flag was adopted on January 8th, 1963.
