About the Flag

The municipality of Cedral (7,972 inhabitants in 2010; 19,740 ha) is located 425 km of São Paulo.

Cedral was founded at an unknown date. The first known inhabitants (1900) are Felicio Bottino, Severiano Vicente Ferreira, Colonel Silverio da Cunha Lacerda and Vicente Ferreira da Silva. The first settlers experienced several difficulties to clear the forest of cedars, therefore the name given to the place. The town increased after the inauguration of the railway station by "Estrada de Ferro Araraquara" in 1912. The district of Cedral was established by State Law No. 1,664 adopted in 1920, as part of the municipality of Rio Preto.
