Regional flag, Sao Paulo by unknown zoom

Regional flag, Sao Paulo

The regional flag of Sao Paulo, Brazil, adopted officially on 3 September 1948. The flag is made of wool bunting with a cotton hoist and is machine stitched. There is a thin cord halyard in the hoist which is made by turning over the edge of the flag. The design consists of 13 black and white horizontal stripes. The canton is red with four five-pointed yellow felt stars surrounding a white disc bearing a dark blue felt map of Brazil.

The flag was designed in 1888 by Julio Ribeiro as a republican flag for Brazil, the red, white and black colours were intended to represent the three races - African, European and Native American that made up the county's population. The flag originally had 15 stripes. Between 1888 and 1948 it was used as an unofficial state flag and symbol of the Constitutionalist movement.

Acquired from Miss M.C.B. Cowan in 1956 as a 'striped flag of unknown origin', the flag seems to have been collected by Admiral Walter Henry Cowan (1871-1956) when in command of the battle cruiser squadron -HMS 'Hood' and 'Repulse'. The two ships visited Brazil in 1922 during the International Exhibition.
