Anhumas was founded on 6 August 1922. In 1928, the village counted 120 houses for a total population of c. 500; some 4 million coffee trees were grown. On 5 August 1928, 312 villagers went to the State Chamber of Representatives to ask the establishment of the district of Anhumas, which was obtained on 14 December 1928. The municipality of Anhumas was established in December 1953, seceding from Presidente Prudente.
The symbols of Anhumas are prescribed in Article 5 of the Municipal
Constitution, adopted on 31 March 1990, as "the flag and the anthem".

The flag appears to be used in 14:20 proportions indoors, while copies
with 2:3 proportions are used, probably less officially, in outdoors
