About the Flag of Agudos

The coat of arms of Agudos was approved by law no. 264 of 10 June 1959 and modified by law no. 684 of 2 June 1968, which also introduced the flag. The flag is blue with a white saltire voided (described as four stripes issuing from the center and charged with blue overstripes), and overall on a yellow rectangle the municipal coat of arms. The arms consist of a blue field with an upright sword flanked by two fleurs-de-lis, all silver, above a yellow base indented with four points. The sword (traditional symbol of St. Paul) recalls the city's original name, São Paulo dos Agudos. The fleurs-de-lis represent power and sovereignty. The yellow indented base symbolizes the Agudos mountain range, after which the city is named, the yellow color indicating its mineral wealth. Otherwise, the colors are assigned the customary significance ascribed in Brazilian municipal arms. The shield is surrounded by a branch of coffee and one of cotton. The scroll is inscribed with the name of the municipality between the dates 1897 and 1898, the dates of its foundation and incorporation respectively.
