About the Flag of PinhalãoThe upper field of the coat of arms is blue, symbolizing harmony, wisdom, lucidity, intellectuality, and so on. In dexter and sinister chief, two pine trees, symbols of the state and the municipality, in black, the color signifying benignancy, wealth, and solidarity. On the center of the blue field, a silver fleur-de-lis, symbolizing the Christian faith of our people, Our Lady. The base of the shield, is gold, cut by a river, the Ribeirão Grande in blue. Gold symbolizes the wealth that the soil provides to us. The plow is the traditional symbol of agricultural labor, and its red color signifies arduous struggle… The supporters are branches of coffee on the dexter side and stalks of maize on the sinister, both covered with fruits and flowers to symbolize an abundant harvest. The scroll is inscribed with the name of the city flanked by the date of the municipality's creation, 14/11 [14 November] on the dexter side and the year on the sinister.
