About the Flag

The municipality of Itaju (3,263 inhabitants in 2010; 22,878 ha) is located 15 km of Bariri and 350 km of São Paulo.

Itaju was founded in 1898 by Joaquim Negrão and Bento Cardoso, who offered a piece of land to erect a chapel dedicated to St. Sebastian. The district of Buenópolis was established by Law No. 1,380 of 14 August 1913, as part of the municipality of Bariri, and renamed Itaju by Law No. 1,828 of 21 November 1921. - Municipal website

The flag of Itaju is presented on the Símbolos Municipais Brasileiros blog as vertically divided white-red (1:2), with the municipal coat of arms placed in the white stripe and a white calvary surmounted by three white stars in the red stripe. I have not found any other source showing the flag.
