Photo of the flag:

The shield is of the style introduced from France to Portugal and inherited by the Brazilian heraldry through the colonization. The six-towered mural crown is a symbol of municipal emancipation. Argent is a symbol of peace, work, friendship, prosperity, purity and religious feeling. The gear wheels placed in the middle of the shield represent the business park managed by the Krupp company. The two eucalyptus represent the green areas; the green bridge linking the two trees represents the Serra dos Cristais and Serra de Botujuru mountains. The peak below the main gear wheel represents Pico de Mursa. Green is a symbol of civility, courtesy, joy and abundance. The fess wavy shown in base represents river Jundiaí. The locomotive shown in chief recalls that the town, built near an important railway junction, was once inhabited only by railway workers. Red is a symbol of wisdom, moderation, austerity and honesty. The grapevines supporting the shield represent the Jundiaí region, from which Campo Limpo was separated. The scroll bears the name of the municipality surrounded by years "1953" and "1964", the years of establishment of the district and of the municipality, respectively. - Municipal website
