About the flag

It is a quite typical portuguese municipal flag, with the coat of arms centered on a plain red background. The coat of arms is argent, a maltese cross gules surrounded by seven towers of the same. Mural crown argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "VILA DE PORTEL".
António Martins, 25 Feb 2000


Version without the coat of arms

Plain (monocolored) portuguese subnational flags are not allowed to have armless variations: plain flags always carry the coat of arms.
Jorge Candeias, 18 Jul 1999
