About the Flag

It is a vertical tricolor of red-white-blue with the municipal coat of arms in the center of the white field.
Valentin Poposki, 26 February 2007

The municipality of Indaiatuba (209,859 inhabitants in 2010; 31,136 ha) is located in the Campinas Metropolitan Area, 25 km of Campinas and 90 km of São Paulo.

Indaiatuba was in the 18th century a main area of sugarcane cultivation. The first horizontal mill equipped with wooden cylinders was set up in Indaiatuba. Table grape is today the main crop in the municipality, Indaiatuba being one of the main producers in São Paulo State, with 7 millions grapevines producing each year 4 millions boxes of grapes. Indaiatuba, however, is mostly known as one of the main Brazilian industrial towns. Industrialization started in the 1920s. Between 1930 and 1945, the town specialized in wood processing industry, being nation-wide famous for the production of umbrella shafts. The textile industry started in the town in 1945, joined in 1960 by mechanics industry and steelmaking. The establishment in 1973 of the Industrial District boosted the development of the town; the number of industries registered in the municipality increased from 37 in 1970 to 75 in 1975 and 422 in 1980. - Municipal website

Photos of the flag:

The coat of arms of Indaiatuba, prescribed by Municipal Law No. 930 of 17 October 1966, "obeys the strict principles of heraldry".

The shield is rounded-off, in the peninsular Portuguese style, recalling the Lusitanian past of Brazil. The two [upper] fields gules (red) are a symbol of liberty, intrepidity and pugnacity. The third field, azure (blue), is a symbol of loyalty, glory, serenity and zeal. In the first quarter, the indaiá* is a straightforward reference to the name of the town, used since its early times. In the second quarter, the two joined gear wheels represent the industrial power of the town, which allowed its progress and constant evolution. In the third quarter, the fess wavy argent represents river Jundiaí, which is the base of the hydrographic system in the municipality. The mural crown is the dedicated symbol of a municipality. The escutcheon azure charged with a fleur-de-lis argent surmounting the central port of the crown is the symbol of the patron saint of the municipality, Our Lady of Candelaria. The dexter supporter, a branch of coffee, is the symbol of the work of all Paulistas who set up the coffee plantations, contributing to the increase of Brazil and to the consolidation of its international fame. The sinister supporter, a branch of laurel, is a permanent reference to the glory of Indaiatuba people, who did their best for the increase of the town, and, therefore, of São Paulo and of Brazil. - Municipal website
