About the flag

City rank, honoured with the Order of Tower and Sword. The flag is red and yellow gyronny and the coat of arms is or, a christian knight riding a horse sable dressed and haired argent, holding a blood stained sword; in point, a cut off head of a moor proper and dressed argent and a cut off head of a christian woman also proper and dressed argent — both blood stained. No comments about the story this tells… The scroll reads "MUI NOBRE E SEMPRE LEAL CIDADE DE ÉVORA", meaning «Most noble and ever loyal city of Evora».
António Martins, 06 Nov 1998
