About the Flag

Some discussion has been found on blogs about a possible split of the state of Pará into two new states, Carajas and Tapajós. A flag has been proposed for Tapajós and is posted at Although the proposal has been circulating for some time, it is not yet official.
Condensed from comments by Pascal Prince, António Martins-Tuválkin, and Jaume Olle, 11-28 September 2008

Here is the proposal for the new state flag:
Valentin Poposki, 3 December 2011

In a referendum held on December 11, 2011, the residents of the state of Pará were asked to vote on proposals to split the state into three parts: Carajás in the southeast, Tapajós in the west, and a rump Pará in the northeast. The proposal to create Carajás was defeated by a margin of 66.6% to 33.4%. The proposal to create Tapajós was defeated by a margin of 66.1% to 33.9%. Voting was highly polarized regionally, with voters in the territory of the proposed new states voting strongly in favor while voters in the rump Pará voted strongly against.

Although this state project has not been approved by referendum it already has its own flag. I have chatted with some members of the committees for the creation of both states (Carajas and Tapajós) and they had told me not that they won't give up the creation of states, they will seek for a new referendum for creating subdivisions within the state of Pará.

The flag is horizontally divided, the upper half yellow, the lower half divided per bend sinister blue over green. In the centre is a white star. Several other proposals are shown on this chart.
