The municipality of Vale do Sol (11,077 inhabitants in 2010; 32,823 ha) is located 200 km north-west of Rio Grande do Sul.

Vale do Sol (Sun Valley) was settled in 1862.
The municipality of Vale do Sol was established by State Law No. 9,599 promulgated on 20 March 1992, separating from Herveiras, Santa Cruz do Sul and Candelária. The name of the new municipality was selected in a public contest; Vale do Sol, a name coined in the 1960s by the medical doctor Luiz Arthur Jacobus based on his observations on local climate, was preferred to Trombudo, Lindenau, Faxinal de Dentro, and Boa Esperança.

The flag and arms of Vale do Sol are prescribed by Municipal Law No. 100 promulgated on 19 October 1995.

The coat of arms is green, representing forests and fields, orange and yellow, representing the soil's resources and fertility, and white representing fraternity.
A red scroll beneath the shield inscribed with the municipality's date of foundation, indicates people's struggle and conquests. The supporters, tobacco and maize, represent the region's main crops. The book represents education and technology, the man represents people, and the plow represents agriculture, which is predominant on the whole municipal territory. The shield's concave upper edge, featuring a sun in the background, represents the municipality's geographical location.
