ITAPUÍ

State : São Paulo

Arms (crest) of Itapuí

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on June 22, 1976.

The right half is canting; itapuí means 'stone fountain' in the local language. The cross in the upper left half comes from the arms of the Bulhões family, as Fernando Martins de Bulhões later became St. Anthony and who is the patron saint of the city. The base symbolises the Bariri Dam, at which banks the city stands.

The shield is flanked by coffee and sugar cane branches, the main crops in the region.
