The law introducing the new republican flag in 1889 wasn't accepted by everyone. Some important politicians and intellectuals rejected the new flag. Some reasons for the disagreement: the positivist symbolism, aesthetic reasons, rejection of the republic itself.

Proposal by Baron of Rio Branco, 1890

This project was not submited to the Constitutional Assembly of 1890. The flag is divided into three diagonal stripes representing the three races that constitute the Brazilian people--red, white and black--with a coat of arms in the center, very similar to the imperial arms.
André Pires Godinho, 26 April 2003

I had recalled the Rio Branco's proposal had stars for the states on the blue bordure of the shield, as the imperial coat of arms had them for the provinces on the annulet.
Joseph McMillan, 3 May 2003

Joe McMillan's claim that stars appeared on the bordure of the shield are "supported" by the image of the flag shown on Wikimedia Commons: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Flag_of_Brazil_(Paranhos_project).svg.

This was an official proposal that was submitted to the Brazilian Assembly in 1892 with the signatures of 14 deputies. The stars and the motto Ordem e Progresso were to be removed and in its place the republican coat of arms positioned in the center. This proposal was rejected by the Brazilian Congress.

Proposal by Wenceslau Escobar, 1908

This project of 1908 is a simple one. The modification is to withdraw the white band with the motto because, as the author of the project said, "the country cannot have an ensign with the motto of a sect" (Positivism). This project was also rejected by the Brazilian Congress.

Proposal by Eurico de Goés, 1908

In his book, Eurico de Goés proposed a flag in 1908 as a new republican flag, criticizing the flag in use. The proposal is very simple--the old imperial flag without the shield and crown, in their place a star symbolizing the republic.
