About the Flag

It is a typical Portuguese communal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a plain green field.
Klaus-Michael Schneider, 5 May 2016

Coat of arms

Shield Argent, five roof tiles Gules set in fess, in base a ferry Vert garnished Gules, seen from prow, in chief a red disc charged with a Paschal Lamb. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "BARQUEIROS - BARCELOS".
Meaning:
The name of the commune means river-boatsman or perhaps ferryman, thus the ferry is canting. The Paschal Lamb is an attribute of St. John the Baptist, the local patron saint.
