Watched an interesting programme on the TV today about this town. They have a
website with their arms and flag which has the same disposition as that of my
State, Rio Grande do Sul, though the yellow is replaced by white:

the link "A Cidade" on the left menu.
This town is amongst many which have been founded by German immigrants back in the late 1800s.
Rudnei Cunha, 6 August 2010
Diagonally divided by an ascending broad red band, green over white, the arms set in a white oval cartouche in the red band, with three small star above.
The page at
http://www.teutonia.com.br/web/a_cidade.html claims that the “shield” in
question (actually, a cartouche) is based on German civic heraldry, and calls
the object above it a mural crown.
