Footnote: The Imperial Order of the Southern Cross is a Brazilian order of chivalry founded by Emperor Pedro I on December 1, 1822. This order was intended to commemorate the independence of Brazil and the coronation of Pedro I. The name derives from the geographical position of the country, under the constellation of the Southern Cross and also in memory of the name ""Terra de Santa Cruz"" (Land of the Holy Cross) given to Brazil at the time of European discovery. Unlike the Imperial Order which was awarded to Brazilians and foreigners alike, the newly established republican National Order of the Southern Cross is awarded to foreigners only. When the Order was re-established in by presidential decree on January 13, 1932, it was restricted to foreigners only with the stipulation that all awards of the Order constitute an act of foreign relations on the part of the Brazilian Government. It is awarded in six classes: Grand Collar, Grand Cross, Grand Officer, Commander, Officer and Knight.
