Presentation

Canchungo is the seat of its namesake sector, one of the six of Cachéu Region. It was was officially known as Teixeira Pinto until 1975. I could not find any data about its current flag use.

Portuguese era municipal flag

Teixeira Pinto was granted a Portuguese-style municipal coat of arms and flag in the 1960s. In Wikimedia Commons, where the quartered background of the flag was clumsily “cleaned up”, uploader Emerson states that this flag «may be still in use». Based on what I know of Portuguese former colonies’ municipal flags, I’d say that is highly unlikely.
António Martins, 18 Jun 2016

The flag was quartered (town rank) yellow and red with the coat of arms on the center.
