About the Flag

The municipality of Bom Sucesso do Sul (3,264 inhabitants in 2019; 19,587 ha) is located 460 km south-west of Curitiba.

Bom Sucesso do Sul was settled in 1929 by José da Silva, after he had discovered a source of water rich in sodium chlorine. The place was known as Lambedor (Licker), referring to animals attracted by the salted source.
The district of Bom Sucesso, named for its patron saint, Our Lady of Good Accomplishment, was established, as part of the municipality of Pato Branco, by State Law No. 4,859 promulgated on 10 October 1983, to be elevated a municipality in 1993. The municipality was renamed to Boim Sucesso do Sul to prevent confusion with the already existing municipality of Bom Sucesso.
