    Background: Rio celebrated another spectacular carnival Apr 25 - this time to mark the transference of the capital to Brasilia as Rio became the nation's 21st state of Guanabara, adding another star to the flag.

    The newly-appointed Governor of the State, Sette Camara officially set of the celebrations by posing the extra star on the flag. The State is now Brazil's smallest - but one of the most populated (3 1/2M).

    Thousands of citizens attended open air mass in Rio. As midnight tolled festive illuminations transformed the city into a fairy-tale land. Through the night and into the long morning beneath the grandeur of the mountain setting Rio continued its carnival.
