NATIVIDADE DA SERRA

State : São Paulo

Natividad.jpg

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on January 3, 1977.

The first quarter is canting; the fleur-de-lis refers to Our Lady of Nativity over a mountain range (Serra). The second half shows a phoenix rising from the water (a unique feature, as a phoenix normally rises from ashes), symbolising that the original village was flooded by the lake formed by the Paraibuna Dam, and rebuilt on higher shores.

The two bulls refer to the importance of cattle breeding in the region. The motto 'Non e flammis sed ex undis surrexi' (I resurrected, not from the flames, but from the waves} refers to the same history as mentioned above.
