Brazil - Goias (Chapter)



Capital: Goiânia

State Population: 4.170.906
Area: 341.289.5 km²
Economy: commerce, industries, agriculture, cattle raising

The flag of the state of Goiás was created during the government of Desembargador Joao Alves de Castro, at that time State President, through Law No. 650 of July 30th, 1919, having been accepted the model created by Joaquim Bonifácio de Siqueira.

The Flag is formed by alternated diagonal stripes in green and yellow, four of each color, commencing with a green one. At a blue oblong, upon which shines in horizontal direction, the left superior angle, in silver the Southern cross.

At the same form as on the National Flag, the green represents the exuberance of the forests and the yellow, the color of gold, the richness which, in its profundities, is hidden in the soil of Goias.

The Southern Cross, this so beautiful constellation which gave to Brazil its first names - "Vera Cruz" and "Santa Cruz" - could not fail to appear upon the pavilion of the State, because at the fair nights of Goias we admire it as a sparkling and brilliant splendor of the indigo blue sky. And so it proudly exhibits itself upon the blue oblong, symbol of the beauty of the skies of Goias.
