State : São Paulo

Arms (crest) of Juquitiba

Official blazon


The arms were granted on April 15, 1988.

The cross symbolises the first chapel erected in the area. The hearts are the symbol of the donation of lands as a gesture of love, by Manoel Jesuino Godinho and his wife. The wavy bars symbolise the Juquiá and São Lourenço rivers. The fleur-de-lis are the symbol of St. Mary, the local patron saint.

The shield is flanked by palmetto branches, the tree responsible for the growth of the city.
