Alcobaça Communal Flag

[Alcobaça commune (until 2013)] 2:3 image by Sérgio Horta and Peter Hans van den Muijzenberg, 18 Nov 2014

It is a typical Portuguese communal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a plain yellow field.
António Martins-Tuválkin, 7 Mar 2010

Coat of arms

[Alcobaça commune (until 2013) CoA] image by Sérgio Horta,

Shield Gules parted per pall reversed wavy Azure fimbriated Argent, in chief an inescutcheon Argent charged with a throughout cross Azure, in dexter base a crescent recumbent Or, in dexter base a fleur-de-lis Or. Mural crown argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "FREGUESIA DE ALCOBAÇA".
Meaning:
The inescutcheon displays the pattern of the oldest Portuguese national flag. The pall reversed wavy refers to little rivers Alcoa and Baça, on whose intersection Alcobaça is placed. That is even the origin of it’s name and thus a canting element.
Jorge Candeias, 5 Apr 1998 and 16 Apr 1998 and António Martins-Tuválkin, 13 July 1999

Flag adopted and published in the official journal Diário da República: III Série on 24 October 1997

Vestiaria Communal Flag

[Vestiaria commune (until 2013)] 2:3 image by Sérgio Horta, 7 Mar 2010

It is a typical Portuguese communal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a plain red field.
António Martins-Tuválkin, 7 Mar 2010

Coat of arms

[Vestiaria commune CoA] image by Sérgio Horta, 7 Mar 2010

The arms are Argent a lozenge throughout Azure and fess throughout wavy Azure fimbriated Argent superimposed by a Cistercian bend (chequered of Gules and Argent) and in sinister chief a grill Sable alight with flames Gules garnished Or. Mural crown argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "VESTIARIA".
Meaning:
"Vestiaria" refers clothing (exact meaning uncertain) and in Portuguese heraldry a shield with a lozenge throughout is said to be "dressed" (or "clothed") (also in Spanish: < http://www.armoria.info/glosario_heraldico/Vestido.html >), thus canting arms. The bend is referring to the Cistercian monastery of Alcobaça and appears also in many commune flags of the municipality.
António Martins-Tuválkin, 7 Mar 2010 and Klaus-Michael Schneider, 9 Aug 2015

Flag adopted and published in the official journal Diário da República: III Série on 30 Dec 1997
