The municipality of Ubiratã (21,013 inhabitants in 2019; 65,258 ha) is
located 550 north-west of Curitiba.
The flag of Ubiratã is horizontally divided blue-white-red, charged in the center with the municipal coat of arms.
The shield is surmounted by a mural crown argent with eight towers, only five of them visible, with doors sable (black). The crown represents the authority of the municipality of Ubiratã.
The yellow arrows pointing upwards represent the primitive inhabitants of the region where the town was founded: the color symbolizes nobility, magnitude and wealth. The green tree (in Tupi-Guarani, "ubiratã", "ironwood") indicates the town's name; the color symbolizes hope, faith, freedom and strength. The fleur-de-lis represents freedom and the purity of the people; white symbolizes integrity, obedience, peace and order. At the bottom, the black helmet represents the strength of industry and commerce, symbolizing prudence, vigor, honesty. Surrounding the shield, the yellow border highlights the resources of the municipality; the red links signify the union of the people of Ubiratã. The fructed soybean branch, the maize plant, the wheat stalks and the chicken represent the agricultural and poultry resources in the municipality. The white scroll highlights the name "Ubiratã" and the respective dates of creation and inauguration of the municipality.
