National Flag Dispute

A woman wrapped in a Brazilian flag marches in front of a group of demonstrators holding left-wing social movement flags, during demonstration against president Jair Bolsonaro. In the past years, right-wing supporters of president Jair Bolsonaro adopted the Brazilian flag as their symbol. Later in 2021, the opposition tries to recover the national colours. People gather at Belo Horizonte downtown, capital of Minas Gerais State, to protest against the government of President Jair Bolsonaro, during Brazil's Independence Day celebration, on September 07, 2021. Demonstrators demand the president's impeachment, condemn the anti-vaccine police, inflation, rumours of corruption and deaths related to the new coronavirus strain (Covid-19).
