About the Flag of Carlos Barbosa

The city page records that the official flag of the City of Carlos Barbosa was instituted by the Law n 341/75, of 29 of September, 1975, and has the following specifications:
A rectangular flag, background of dark blue, with a rectangle of white edges forming the initials CB; the interior of the rectangle is white and on this is a gold cog-wheel. In the center of this is a disk with the words CARLOS BARBOSA and 25.09.59. Two yellow heads of wheat with blue lining surrounds the wheel.

The significance of the colors and drawings are:
the rectangle, that surrounds the images makes up the letters CB, initials in the name of the City. The form, also, is of an open book representing the culture, given the great number of schools in relation to the existing population at the time. The cog-wheel represents work and industrial activity, whereas the two heads of grain represent the agricultural potential of the city and, finally, we find the name of the city and date of its political emancipation.
