The samba school Mocidade Independente was set up in the year 1955 on November 10th by a group of eight people including Olímpio Bonifácio, Djalma Rosa, Renato da Silva, Sílvio Trindade, and Garibaldi F. Lima. Their first participation was in Rio’s parade of 1957 with the theme The Ball of Roses or “O Baile das Rosas” and won the 5th place.

The name Mocidade Independente de Padre Miguel means "Independent Youth of Father Miguel” and this samba school is symbolised by the colors green and white with a large green star at the centre of the flag.
In the beginning Mocidade gained popularity for its amazing Drum Section, it was only in the later years that it achieved a status of an important school at the Sambadrome and started to compete directly with the great samba schools such as Mangueira, Portela, Império Serrano and Salgueiro. Amongst its many commendable parades include the beautiful and imposing opening wing float, a giant spaceship of the Indians of the future. Mocidade Independente is a force to reckon with in the carnival circuit of Brazil and amongst the 5 most important samba schools in the country.
