According to the same site, the municipal flag of Limeira is blue with a green cross superimposed upon a wider white cross (officially but inaccurately described as quartered per cross), representing the Christian spirit of the people of Limeira. The coat of arms on the center of the flag represents the municipal government; the white lozenge on which it is placed represents the city itself, seat of the municipality the stripes comprising the cross represent the extension of municipal power throughout the municipal territory. The blue quarters represent the rural areas of the municipality. Of the colors, white is said to symbolize peace, amity, purity, piety, and so on; green is for honor, civility, courtesy, abundance, and joy; and blue is for justice, nobility, zeal, perseverance, and loyalty. Proportions are 14:20, conforming to the proportions of the national flag.
