The hero of Brazil.

This national holiday is an opportunity for Brazilians to celebrate Joaquim Jose da Silva Xavier, a famous political figure and symbol of the independence movement in Brazil during the eighteenth century against the Portuguese Crown.

Many festivities are organised to celebrate the memory of this historical figure who was one of the main actors of the auriverde insurgency.
