Photographer's Note

Here I was in the higher part of the Big Axis. I used my powerful zoom to get the National Congress at distance. Here you can see the largest flag of Brazil, located in the Three Powers Square, the mast is 100 meters high and it was inaugurated in 1972 to celebrate the 150 years of Brazilian independence. The mast is composed by 24 bars, meaning the 24 states and territories of Brazil in 1972.
At distance you can see the outskirts of the city, located in the other edge of Paranoá Lake.
You can see the two buildings of the National Congress and the bridges between them, where you can see a people inside. At April 21th the sunrise appears exactly in that gap, for coincidence it is the day of Brasília anniversary and the day of celebration of the leader of a rebellion for Brazilian independence occurred in 1789.

Eu estava na parte mais alta do Eixão e ao longe podia ver o Congresso Nacional e a maior bandeira brasileira, erguida na Praça dos Três Poderes. Essa bandeira tem 100 metros de altura, sendo que o mastro tem 24 barras significando as 24 unidades da federação em 1972, quando se celebrava os 150 anos da independência. Ao longe vemos os subúrbios da cidade, localizados do outro lado do lago do Paranoá. reparem que há uma pessoa parada na ponte entre os dois prédios do congresso, aliás, o sol nasce nesse espaço no dia 21 de abril, que é o aniversário da cidade e dia de Tiradentes.
