The flag is light blue with the municipal coat of arms in the upper hoist,
four white bars across each of the upper fly and lower fly quarters, and the
constellation of the Southern Cross in the lower fly. The coat of arms is
tierced per bend sinister, blue with a gold Latin cross, red with the arm
and banner from the São Paulo city arms, and gold with some kind of white bird.
In sinister chief is an inescutcheon, apparently white with a black triangle.
The shield is flanked by coffee and sugar cane and the motto is Deo et terrae matri
(God and mother country)."
