The flag of Lucas de Rio Verde, designed by José Sales Luna de Souza, is
prescribed by Law No. 81, adopted in 1990. The flag is made of a green
rectangle. In the middle is placed a white map of Mato Grosso outlined in
blue, symbolizing peace. In the middle of the map is placed a disc whose
upper half is a sun symbolizing the localization of the municipality in Mato
Grosso and whose lower half a representation of Rio Verde ("Green River") and
green leaves symbolizing agriculture.
Note: The emblem in the middle of the flag is not the official municipal coat of arms.
