Municipality

The municipality of Barra do Ribeiro (13,316 inhabitants in 2016; 73,082 ha) is located 60 km south of Porto Alegre.

Barra do Ribeiro was settled in 1800, as Charqueada. This name recalls a ranch ("charqueada", producing salted beef meat, "charque") established by Antônio Alves Guimarães on a domain granted in 1780 by Luis Vasconcelo e Souza. The settlement was renamed for the confluence ("barra") of stream Ribeiro with river Guaíba. Originally part of Porto Alegre, Barra do Ribeiro was elevated to a district of the municipality of Triunfo, established in 1831. A project of re-incorporation of Barra, Dores and São João to Porto Alegre, tabled in 1837 at the Provincial Assembly, failed. They were, however, re-incorporated to the state capital by Law No. 14 promulgated on 15 April 1846.
Barro de Ribeiro was transferred in 1857 to the newly established municipality of Dores, which was suppressed in 1861, though. In 1872, the parishes of Belém, Pedras Brancas and Barra formed Porto Alegre's 3rd district. Barra was elevated in 1896 to the seat of Porto Alegre's 7th district, subsequently of the 8th district (1915) and of the 10th district (1926).
In 1926, Barra do Ribeiro was transferred to the newly established municipality of Guaíba, as its 2nd district, and granted the rank of "vila" in 1938.
The municipality of Barra do Ribeiro was established by State Law No. 3,719 promulgated on 17 February 1959, and inaugurated on 17 June 1959.

Symbols

The flag and arms of Barra do Ribeiro, designed by the heraldist Arcinoe Antonio Peixoto de Faria, are prescribed by Municipal Law No. 287 promulgated on 4 January 1974.

On the flag, the coat of arms represents the municipal government while the white circle represents the town proper - seat of the municipality. The white color symbolizes peace, friendship, work, prosperity, purity and religious feeling, while the circle is a symbol of eternity, as a geometric figure without either beginning or end. The white stripes superimposed with red stripes quartering the flag represent the spread of the municipal power all over its territory. The red color is a symbol of patriotic love, dedication, audacity, intrepidity, courage and valiance. The blue sectors represent the rural properties scattered over the municipal territory. Blue is a symbol of justice, nobleness, perseverance and loyalty.

The coat of arms features a shield in the first style of shield introduced in Portugal, inherited by Brazilian heraldry to evoke the colonizing race and main constituent of our nationality.
The mural crown is a universal symbol of Brazilian municipalities, being argent with six towers, only four visible in perspective, therefore highlighting the town as a municipal seat.
Argent (white) used in the field of the shield is a symbol of peace, friendship, work, prosperity, purity and religious feeling.
The green escutcheon charged with three pallets or a surmounted by a Viscount's coronet is a tribute to José de Araújo Ribeiro, famous child of Barra do Ribeiro. Vert is a symbol of hope, since greening fields are a presage of good harvest.
The blue base of the shield represents river Guaíba. Blue is a symbol of justice, nobleness, perseverance, zeal and loyalty.
The rice and maize plants represent the main crops.
The chimneys and cog wheels represent industry.
The bovine's head represents cattle-breeding.
The scroll gules (red) features in letters argent (silver) "Barra do Ribeiro" and the Arab numerals "17-2-1959", the date of political emancipation of the municipality.
