About the Flag of Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa's municipal Flag is composed by a rectangle (1,00 m hign
and 1,60 m wide) transversely divided. The upper triangle is sky-blue and
the lower one is white. The municipal coat of arms is centered on the flag. Above it
are two historic years: 1875, which marks the arrival of the first
immigrants (Italians), and 1891, which marks the achievement of municipal status.
The coat of arms was created 20 November 1966 and was altered on
13 April 1998. It is composed by three images that represent
important elements of the regional culture:
