Presidente Prudente is a city in the east of São Paulo State.
I found this flag at the following web address: http://www.pucsp.br/~victor/pp/ppband.html
Chris Pinette, 23 April 1997
The flag is a horizontal triband, red, white, and black (the colors of the State of São Paulo), 14:20, with the coat of arms on the center. The coat of arms is red, representing the courage of the first settlers, with the image of the bandeirante Raposo Tavares. A chief is tierced in pale, dexter a green forest, center the head of Mercury (for commerce), and sinister a cow's head (for ranching). The supporters are branches of corn (maize) and cotton. The motto is O trabalho a tudo vence, or "Labor conquers all."
