Heráldica do Brasil
State : São Paulo
The arms were granted on December 30, 1889 and slightly changed on November 6, 1973.
The phoenix symbolises the resurrection and survival of the city after three large disasters; the yellow fever plague, the plundering of the city by dictator Vargas and other plunderings during the Constitutionalist War.
The shield is surrounded by coffee and sugar cane branches, the main agricultural crops in the area.
The motto Labore Virtute Civitas Floret means 'By labour and moral strength the city will prosper'.
