The right part features the Southern Cross, the stars representing the town and its districts (seat, Placa Itaúna, São Paulo Paraná, Zimaré, and Įgua da Abelha). The municipal coat of arms is placed on the left, overlapping the two colored parts.
The coat of arms of Itaúna do Sul is composed of a Portuguese shield, featuring a Bible, to represent religion, in black, golden yellow, white and red on a white field. In the other part, a brown mountain with a golden yellow rising sun; a hoe and a hat, representing a farmer and agriculture, the main source of income, on a green field.
