About the Flag

An off-centred red cross, fimbriated white, on a dark blue field, a white disk on the cross bearing the municipal arms.

The flag, prescribed by Law No. 653 of 28 February 1984 and designed by Geraldo Martins Reis, is vertically divided yellow-white-green with the municipal coat of arms in the middle. The Law prescribes a size of 1.30 m x 1.90 m and three equal vertical stripes of 0.57 cm x 0.24 m (sic), yellow, white and green.

The coat of arms represented on the flag, whose photo is shown on the municipal website is:
"Azure, per fess 1. a church argent masoned sable, 2a. a book argent a quill or, 2b. an oxen's head brown. The shield surmounted by a mural crown argent masoned sable. The shield flanked dexter by a millet plant proper and sinister by a coffee branch proper. Under the shield a scroll argent a writing sable a year / the name of the municipality / a year."

The coat of arms used on the municipal website and on Dirk's "hybrid" image seems to be a modernized version of the previous one, as:
"Azure, per fess 1. a church argent masoned and roofed sable, 2. a book, a quill and an oxen's head all argent. The shield surmounted by a
mural crown brown masoned argent. The shield flanked dexter by a coffee branch proper and sinister by a corn plant proper. Under the shield a scroll or a writing sable the name of the municipality."

The mural crown recalls the legal status of the town. The church represents religion. The book and quill represent culture. The oxen represents cattle-breeding and the plants represent agriculture.
