State : São Paulo

Arms of Lavrinhas

Official blazon


The arms were granted on July 19, 1976.

The red field and the swords symbolise the bloodshed in the area during the 1932 war. The mountains represent the Mantiqueira range; the arrows are the symbol of St. Sebastian, the local patron saint.

The shield is flanked by two soldiers, again a symbol of the war. The motto 'Cave nam Vigilio' means 'Beware I am vigilant'.
