Administrative division

Brazil consists of 27 Federal States and one federal district, where is located the federal capital, Brasília. The states are generally based on historical, conventional borders which have developed over time. The federal district is not a state in its own right, but shares some characteristics of a state and some of a municipality.

Each state is further divided into municipalities. Around 5500 municipalities exist in the country.

Heraldry

some of the states and many municipalities use truly heraldic coats of arms. Others use some kind of emblem or logo (often incorrectly referred to as coats of arms).

Arms of municipalities: Select by first letter:

A | B | C | D | E | F | G | H | I | J | L | M | N | O | P | Q | R | S | T | U | V |
