The Federal District flag was instituted by "N" Decree No. 1090, on August 25th 1969. Idealized by the poet Guilherme de Almeida, authority in Heraldry, it presents a quadrangular shield of green and yellow colors, on a white background symbolizing peace. Four arrows, alluding to the Indian's arrows, consecrated elements of Brazil's origin are arranged from the center to the North-South and the East-West, having been described by the author as "the centrifugal action of power".
