Photographer's Note

In central Brazil the religious celebrations of Holy Ghost are very important and there are many festivals around, 50 days after Easter time.
This religious event was created in 1320 by Isabel, the Saint Queen or Portugal. She did a promises the symbol of a Dove with a crown would travel around the world, getting donations for the poor people if her husband and their son made amends, because the D. Dinis king wanted to give the crown to another son he had with another woman and the civil war was near. In Gois city there is a tradition of a member of the family to take the hands of two members of the family, who are enemies, and take their hands and put above the flag of Divino to make amends.
In Pirenpolis this religious event is linked with the Cavalhadas event (whose video I showed you before).
Here you can see the red flag of the DIVINO (Divine Holy Ghost) exposed yet in this colonial house divided in two sides, the Pireneus Mountain range is visible ahead.

No centro do Brasil as celebraes em homenagem ao Esprito Santo so frequentes e ocorrem 50 dias depois da Pscoa.
Esse evento religioso foi criado em 1320 pela rainha Santa Isabel de Portugal que fez uma promessa para reconciliar o filho com o pai, levando ao mundo o smbolo da pomba com uma coroa e nas festividades arrecadaria donativos para os pobres. Seu marido, Dom Dinis estava brigado com o filho e queria dar o trono de Portugal para um filho ilegtimo, a guerra civil estava prxima de acontecer. Na cidade de Gois costume uma pessoa da famlia apanhar as mos de duas pessoas brigadas e colocar em cima da bandeira do Divino para os obrigar a fazer as pazes.
Em Pirenpolis as festividades religiosas esto unidas s cavalhadas. Nessa foto vemos a bandeira do Divino ainda exposta na parede dessa casa colonial dividida em duas partes. Ao longe aparece a Serra dos Pireneus.
