There’s a Town in Brazil that Embraces the Confederate Flag

Santa Bárbara d’Oeste is a little city in São Paulo, Brazil.

But they have a curious tradition: they celebrate American Confederate heritage.

They eat fried chicken and biscuits…

Confederate money is alive and well…

They celebrate it as a family…

They square dance dressed as Confederate soldiers and Southern Belles…

And also embrace current Southern culture…

They also present the flags of all 13 Confederate states.

The official flag of the Confederate States of America gets a special presentation.

João Leopoldo Pardoveze has been celebrating Festa Confederada for 25 Years.
