The seal celebrates the inauguration of the new Comandante Ferraz Antarctic Station, built by the Brazilian Navy. The photograph chosen to compose the seal brings an aerial image of the station, making it possible to capture, in addition to the natural landscape of the continent, all the modules and installations that comprise the structure of the new station. In the upper right corner we have the station’s logo and that is also the title of the broadcast. The techniques of photography and computer graphics were used.
