    Jose Bonifacio de Andrada e Silva actively participated in the independence process of Brazil from Portugal in early 1800's. Once an independent nation, Brazil hailed Bonifacio as the "Patriarch of Independence". Bonifacio, as Minister of Interior and Foreign Relations, was responsible for the design of many national symbols, like the Imperial flag, shield of arms and others. During the drafting of the Constitution of 1824, Bonifacio stood against Pedro I on several issues which sent him into exile in 1825. Later, after amending his relationship with the Emperor, Bonifacio returned to Brazil to serve as Pedro II's tutor.
