In my review of my old newspapers, I found on the bulletin of the Portimão municipality a photo taken during the annual motonautics grand prix that has been taking place here in the Arade estuary in the last few years. It shows a view of the public and a few flags, one of which was new to me: the flag of the Securitas company.
It can be described as a black flag with a white border all around, containing three red discs on top and the word SECURITAS in golden caps below. It's also the Securitas logo bordered in white, which could justify calling it a LOB flag. Despite of that, it's a relatively attractive flag.
The Securitas company is a private secutiry company present in Portugal for many years now (since 1966) and, at least in visibility, with great success, but with Swedish roots. This flag seems to be the company flag (and not just an advertising banner), since we can find an image of it in the portuguese website ( http://www.securitas.pt/quem_somos/main.htm ), side by site with the flag of Portugal and, in another page (http://www.securitas.pt/quem_somos/foto_suecia.htm ) side by side with the flag of Sweden.
