About the Flag of Divinópolis

The following is from the official municipal site: The flag is orange (representing the municipal territory, which is comprised mainly of red-orange soil), with the coat of arms or logo on the center. The coat of arms is an artistic rendition of the dove of the Holy Spirit with its wings and tail spread, in reference to the original 1770 name of Divinópolis, Espírito Santo da Itapecerica. It is constructed of a white hexagon symbolizing the city proper (said to indicate the harmonization by the municipal authority of the commitments to development, justice, and security on the one hand (the lower side), and liberty, equality, and well-being (the upper side). On the upper part, a black figure represents an ingot of pig-iron, symbol of the importance of the steel industry, with the head of the dove outlined by its lower edge. In the lower part is a partial depiction of a red-orange cogwheel, symbol of machinery and commerce, recognizing the role of the railroad and "indicating the triumph of intelligence over brute matter," the upper edge forming the tail of the dove, its six indentations. The white areas stretching to right and left, besides being the wings of the dove, also symbolize social development and expansion. As to the colors, the orange is the symbol of the sun, fire, and warmth. Black is noted to be the sum of all three primary colors. White is the combination of all the colors of light, and alludes to the Holy Spirit as well.
