About the Flag

The municipality of Mirandópolis (27,425 inhabitants in 2010; 91,827 ha) is located 600 km of São Paulo. The municipality is made of the town of Mirandópolis proper and of the districts of Três Alianças and Amandaba.

Mirandópolis was founded in 1934, as the village of São João da Saudade, by Colonel Manoel Alvez de Athaíde. Timber extraction, as well as coffee and cotton cultivation boosted the development of the town. The district of Comandande Árbues, named for Colonel Pedro Árbues, a former commander of the State public forces, was inaugurated on 22 May 1937. Athaíde was not involved either in the process of establishment of the district or of the selection of the new name; once a wealthy, respected landlord, he would die in 1972, aged 86, ruined and completely forgotten. The municipality of Mirandópolis was established by State Law-Decree No. 14,334 of 30 November 1944 and inaugurated on 1 January 1945. The municipality is named for Senator Rodolfo Miranda. - Municipal website

The symbols of Mirandópolis are prescribed in Article 2 of the Municipal Constitution, adopted on 5 April 1990 and last amended on 10 December 2010, as "the flag, the coat of arms and the anthem, representative of its culture and history". - Municipal Constitution

The flag of Mirandópolis is vertically divided blue-red (1:2). Over the intersection of the two fields is placed a white rectangle charged with the municipal coat of arms.
