The second flag in our serie about Brazilian flags is from Paraíba. Let me show you the current flag:
The red, white and blue is a clear reference to French flag, and means the motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity". The most curious is the coat of arms, that references to the three oldest Alagoas villes: Marechal Teodoro (early known as Alagoas) (three fishes in blue), Porto Calvo (three red mountains) and Penedo (a castle in a canyon). The star, as I explained in last post, means that Alagoas is a state in Brazilian federation.
My new proposal would be based in an older state flag, but it's worse than the new. I personally like the colors of Alagoas flag, so I mantained them.
I simplified the flag. The star is a very important symbol in Brazilian vexillology, so it remained. As a white star on a white stripe is a wrong thing to made, I dropped it. This star could be simplified, but for now I'll keep it this way. There's a similar flag from People's Republic of Wiscounsin, but, come on, this doesn't exist!
