About the Flag of Cotia

The flag of Cotia is white with the municipal coat of arms on the center. The coat of arms is divided horizontally. The upper half is blue with a black mountain peak between a gold crown chased with jewels and a white five-pointed star. The lower half is green with a wavy silver fess. Above the shield is a gold mural crown; below it is a silver scroll inscribed with the name of the municipality flanked by the dates 1723 (founding of the settlement) and 1856 (attainment of municipal status). The blue color is for the mild and healthy climate of the city. The crown represents the patron saint of the municipality, Our Lady of Montserrat. The white star recalls various illustrious citizens of Cotia. The black peak shows the geographic situation of the city, which is atop a mountain. Green represents the fertile fields and the wavy silver stripe symbolizes the Cotia River.
