Prior to the renaming the city was known as Palmira. The Cabangu museum, located 16km from the centre of the city is dedicated to his memory. It is located in the house where he was born and has personal objects, photos and an aviation museum.DemographicsSince the 1980s the municipality has been experiencing a period of slight demographic standstill. Between the census held in 1996 and the census held in 2000 the population increased at the rate of 0.32% per annum which is much lower than other places in the country.
