Brazilian postage stamp commemorating the visit of Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie I in December 1960. On December 13, the same day that Selassie was meeting with Brazilian president Juscelino Kubitschek in the newly-inaugurated capital of Brasilia, members of the Emperor’s Imperial Guard staged an unsuccessful coup attempt in Ethiopia, which was quickly suppressed by the Ethiopian military. Selassie flew back to Ethiopia two days later.
