Novais was founded on a piece of land, then counting 3 to 4 huts,
offered by Miguel Ruiz in 1923. The district of Novais was established
in 1925, as part of the municipality of Catanduva, and subsequently
transferred to the municipality of Tabapuã.
The municipality of Novais was established by State Law No. 7,664 of
30 December 1991. The municipality is named for Major João Baptista
Novaes, a famous political chief of Jaboticabal.

The flag of Novais appears to be blue with the municipal coat of arms
and some white parts.

From the photographs linked above, I'd say that it looks like the flag of
Novais is blue over white tricolour with the municipal coat of arms centred over
all. Together they show that the description given above is indeed accurate.
However, compared to the arms, such as they are, seen at
http://www.camaranovais.sp.gov.br/home/index.php/contato, "Novais" is
written in a thinner font. It might be there are other differences as well. The
design is still not exactly clear.
