About the Flag

The municipality of Missal (10,474 inhabitants in 2010; 31,951 ha) is located on the border with Paraguay (here, Lake Itaipu), 620 km west of Curitiba.

Missal was settled in 1961-1962, mostly by 2nd-generation German colonists led by Father José Backes, the founder of the Sipal Colonizadora company. The early colonists mostly lived from timber extraction. The name of the new settlement (lit., [Roman] Missal] was chosen to highlight the religious background of its foundation; at the time, 98% of the inhabitants were of Roman Catholic religion. The Roman Missal is the liturgical book that contains all the texts used in the mass for one year; its use has been mandatory since a Decree issued by Pope Pius V in 1570.
The municipality of Missal was established by State Law No. 7,566 promulgated 30 December 1981, separating from Medianeira, and inaugurated on 1 December 1983.
