The municipality of Morro Agudo (29,127 inhabitants in 2010; 13,862 ha) is located 400 km of São Paulo.

Morro Agudo (lit. "Sharp Hill") developed in the Invernada Estate, owned by the Junqueira family, whose Portuguese ancestors settled in Minas Gerais in the middle of the 18th century. The settlement formed the district of São José do Morro Agudo, part of the municipality of Espírito Santo dos Batatais. The municipality of Monte Agudo was established in 1934 and inaugurated on 6 January 1935.

The symbols of Morro Agudo are prescribed in Article 3 of the Municipal Constitution, without further description, as "a flag, a coat of arms and an anthem, representative of its culture and history".

The flag and arms of Morro Agudo are prescribed by Municipal Law No. 415 of 23 April 1969.

The flag is blue, quartered by a cross made of yellow-red-yellow stripes. In the middle of the flag is placed a yellow lozenge charged with the municipal coat of arms. - Website of the Municipal Council
