About the Flag

The municipality of Ipaussu (13,746 inhabitants in 2010; 20,914 ha) is located 320 km of São Paulo.

Ipaussu was founded in the last decades of the 19th century by João Justino and João Corra de Miranda; canoeing on river Pardo, the two explorers reached a big island, which they called Ilha Grande (Great Island). The Sorocabana railway inaugurated the station of Ilha Grande in 1908, boosting the development of the place, then made of four estates (São Luiz, Santa Hermínia, Santa Augusta and Bela Vista). The district of Ilha Grande was established by State Law No. 187 of 23 August 1863, as part of the municipality of Santa Cruz de Rio Pardo. The municipality of ipauçu was established by State Law No. 1,465 of 20 September 1915. Ipauçu comes from Ipaguaçu, which means "Great Island" in Tupi-Guarani. - Municipal website
