About the Flag of Taquarí

At we can see a number of photos about "Pelego Branco" Association's activities, keeping alive (parts of) the traditional life-style of south Brazilian cowboys. The fifth photo down was taken inside the communal "gatherhouse" and shows in the foreground the local town's flag; visible in the background the flags of Rio Grande do Sul state, of Brazil and something else, white with lettering; these flags are hoisted in slanted poles attached from the walls.

The Taquarí town flag is a horizontal triband of blue, white and green with the local coat of arms' shield and crown inside the white stripe and its scroll (red with white letters) on the green stripe. This coat of arms can be seen at; using this image I made the image above.

The page includes also a number of historical photos (second half of the 20th century?) showing the use of national and state flags in horse riders cowboy parades.
