Matinhos is a municipality in Brazil that arose in 1920s. It is considered the "Girlfriend of Paraná" as the date of its emancipation was June 12, Lovers' Day in Brazil.HistoryThe colonization of Matinhos started in the mid-19th century, when the carijó Indians used to live in the coastal part of Paraná, discovered in 1820 by a French explorer named Augusto de Saint Hilaire. The first name was Matinho, after a river in town, and the first colonists were Portuguese and Italians, who founded an agricultural colony.In 1927 was inaugurated the "sea road", connecting Paranaguá and Praia de Leste (Pontal do Paraná), that brought a lot of families, mostly German, including the family of Augusto Blitzkow, responsible for the urbanization of Caiobá.In August 1931 the region received a visit from the governor of Paraná, Carlos Cavalcanti, who went from Paranaguá to Caiobá in a waggon.On January 27, 1951, by law n.613, Matinhos became a district belonging to Paranaguá, and on June 12, 1967, it became a municipality, no longer attached to Paranaguá.Flag and anthemIn 1970 Professor Arcioné Antonio Peixoto Farias created the town's flag and coat of arms, which on March 13, 1970, under the law n.35/70, became official.
