About the Flag

The municipality of Marcolândia (7,010 inhabitants in 2010; 137 sq. km) is located in southeastern Piauí, 350 km of Teresina.

The flag of Marcolândia was designed by José Roberto da Silva. Green represents cassava fields. The blue and yellow lines represent the localization of the municipality on the border between Piauí (yellow) and Pernambuco (blue). White represents the production of cassava flour. In canton, the yellow star represents the Piauí State; it is charged with a smaller green star representing the geographical localization of the municipality in the State.

The coat of arms depicts a stylized wing representing liberty and independence. The green gear wheel symbolizes industry, here the cassava flour mills. In the lower right part of the shield is placed a plant of cassava. The scroll is charged with the years of establishment of the tax post ("1956") and of the political emancipation of the municipality ("1992"). - Marcolândia unofficial website
