Former Eiras Commune Flag (until 2013)


[Eiras commune (until 2013)] 2:3 image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 26 July 2014

Coat of arms

[Eiras commune CoA (until 2013)] image by Sérgio Horta, 14 Mar 2006

The arms are Gules upon base wavy of Argent and Azure, in centre a baton Argent with a canteen of the Same flanked by two corn cobs Or (dexter chief and sinister heart) and two wheat ears Or (sinister chief and dexter heart). Mural crown argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters ""EIRAS - COIMBRA".
Meaning:
The base wavy is probably symbolizing Mondego river. The crops are symbolizing agriculture. Baton and canteen are attributes of St. James the Elder (Portuguese: Santiago Maior).
Source: I spotted this flag on 27 September 2013 in the town hall of Coimbra.
Klaus-Michael Schneider, 26 July 2014

Flag and coat of arms were approved on 17 December 1997, published in Diário da República: III Série.

[São Paulo de Frades commune (until 2013)] 2:3 image by Klaus-Michael Schneider,

It is a typical Portuguese communal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a plain red field (village rank).
Klaus-Michael Schneider, 29 July 2014

Coat of arms

The arms are Argent, in centre a sword Gules with hilt Sable pointing to base, flanked by a bunch of grapes Purpure in dexter and a pine cone Gules in sinister, both leaved Vert. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "S. PAULO DE FRADES".
Meaning:
The sword is an attribute of St. Paul (often together with a serpent), grapes and cone probably are alluding to viticulture and forestal riches.
