The municipality of Lindóia (6,708 inhabitants in 2010; 4,860 ha) is located in eastern São Paulo State, 100 km of Campinas and 165 km of São Paulo. Producing 40% of the mineral water bottled in Brazil, Lindóia is considered as the "National Capital of Mineral Water", and officially registered as a "Hydromineral Resort" by State Decree no. 259 of 29 May 1970. In 1928, Father Casimiro Gomes de Abreu asked the Adolfo Lutz Institute in Campinas to analyze the water that gushes fourth from a spring located in Benedito de Souza Godói's farm. The water was found to be radioactive and rich in bicarbonate and the spring was named São Benedito. On 2 April 1969, the NASA Spatial Mission purchased 100 dozens of 0.5 L bottle of Lindoya water, which, therefore, deserves the nickname of "the water that flew to the moon". The Lindoya water was also elected the "official water" to be served to President Jimmy Carter when he visited Brazil in 1978.

Lindóia was established, as a district of Serra Negra, on 29 June 1899 by State Law no. 638. The name of the place means in Tupi-Guarani "a river that never floods". The municipality of Lindóia was first established on 30 June 1938 by State Decree-Law No. 9,775. Lindóia was downgrade to a district of Águas de Lindóia on 30 December 1953 by State Law no. 2,456. The municipality of Lindóia was reestablished on 28 February 1964 by State Law No. 8,092 and inaugurated on 31 March 1965.

Article 2 of the Municipal Constitution prescribes, without further description, the municipal symbols as "a flag, a coat of arms and an anthem, representative of its culture and history". - Municipal Constitution

The flag of Lindóia is light blue, with the municipal coat of arms placed on a white rectangle.

Photo of the flag:

The coat of arms of Lindóia was designed in 1969, for the celebration of the 5th anniversary of the municipal emancipation. The shield is surmounted by a mural crown gules, whose three towers represent the three successive phases of the administrative evolution of the town: - dexter, 1728-1936, as part of Serra Negra; - sinister, 1938-1964, as part of águas de Lindóia; - central, 1964-, as a municipality. The shield depicts the most significant natural features of the municipality: - in green ,the Serra de Mantiqueira mountains; - in blue, the great lake; - an eucalyptus, representing the exuberant vegetation; - river Peixe; - a spring, representing the most important natural resource. The shield is surrounded by two branches of coffee recalling the Paulista origin of the town. Below the shield a three-part scroll azure inscribed with 'LINDOYA', 'AQUA PURA' 'VITA LONGA' (Latin for Pure Water, Long Life). - Municipal website
