About the Flag

Three fields radiating from the upper hoist: green in the upper fly, yellow across toward the lower fly, maroon in the lower hoist; in center a white star on the yellow field.

The municipality of Ourilândia do Norte (27,564 inhabitants in 2010; 13,826 sq. km) is located on southeastern Pará, 650 km of Belém. Ourilândia do Norte was established in 1980 within the Tucumã Project. Following the discovery of fertile soils and plenty of gold in the region, the Tucumã Project allowed the selection of colonists among applicants who could not afford the purchase of a plot of land. The first colonists built huts near the sentry box (Portuguese, "guarita") set up by the Director of the Tucumã Project; accordingly, the first settlement was named Guarita. Originally a district of the municipality of São Félix do Xingu, Ourilândia do Norte was made a municipality by State Law No. 5,449 of 10 May 1988, published on 12 May 1988 in the State official gazette. State Law No. 6,066 of 14 August 1997 modified the border of Ourilândia do Norte with the municipality of Água Azul do Norte.
