You’re right ! The green on the Brazilian flag stand for the forests of Brazil. What does the color of USA’s flag stand for ?

Cool, Kelly! Did you go to any celebrations?

It’s difficult to say exactly what the colors stand for, but a common sourse says the following:

“According to custom and tradition, white signifies purity and innocence; red, hardiness and valor; and blue signifies vigilance, perseverance, and justice.”

the stars of brazilian flag stands for federal units 27

Yes, and the stars on the American flag stand for our 50 states, too.

The abreviation ‘BRB’ stands for: ‘be right back’.

Yep! That’s true! BRB!

What did stand for the trip for your son ???

Hi Tim, thank you for the podcasts. They are helping me a lot every day. Good job!
I have a doubt: Is this ceremony still done every day in all the schools in the USA?
This ceremony stands for the value of homeland for north americans.

Hi Tim. Some years ago, be a politician stood for hope and work for people. Nowdays, unfortunately, this profession stands for corruption and lobby, I mean, work against people and in favor of huge companies. What do you think politics will stand for in the future?

Hi Tim,

In that phrase “What does CEP stand for?” can I replace “stand for” to “meaning”?

Thanks and keep’ em coming these podcasts!

Star Wars movies stand for science fiction type and stood for only nerd people, but now everybody loves it!

NYPD stands for New York Police Department… (horrible, but that’s the only thing that came in my mind)

OMG stand for Oh my good!

T.G.I.F stands for the preferred brazilian’s day 🙂

BTW, I pledge allegiance of my wife as well as my family as being these greatest values of my life.

On the flag Brazilian colors stand for:
The green stand for wealth the forests,
The yellow stand for national wealth the country,
The blue stand for sky and rivers Brazilians,
The white lust for peace,
The stars stand for States and Federal District the Country.

The phrase “Ordem e Progresso” (Order and Progress) was based on studies of the French philosopher founder of positivism, Auguste Comte.

Pledge of Allegiance stands for “juramento de fidelidade” in english. Thanks!
