According to law no. 309 of 15 July 1959, the flag of Monte Alto
is composed of the colors black, red, green, blue, and white. The
red, white, and blue, in three equal bands, form the field of the flag.
The black, covering the part of the red band in the upper left [hoist] corner,
serves as a base for the coat of arms of the municipality. The green, in the form
of a star, is in the center of the flag on the white band.
The flag was designed by João Batista Freire de Andrade.
