The production entitled "Hungria, Reino dos o Justus," which roughly translated, "Hungary, the kingdom of the righteous."

Although in Portuguese, the right spelling would have been " Hungria o Reino dos justos, ", but one letter of the phrase has been changed to honor Brazilian entrepreneur, Roberto Justus who has supported the samba school – Roberto Justus has Hungarian ancestry.

The Golden Rose Carnival in Sao Paulo predates the more famous Rio carnival, but it is also considered a great event; the carnival is broadcasted live from start to finish by the largest Brazilian television channel, Globo.
