It is a quite typical Portuguese municipal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a plain green background.
The arms are argent between two olive branched fruited sable and leaved vert and tied gules a bunch of grapes fruited purple and leaved vert under a leopard azure charged on its forehead by a five-pointed estoile or. Mural crown argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "VILA DA CINFÃES".
Flag and coat of arms adopted and published in the official journal Diário do Governo : I Série in 1937.07.01.
Plain (monocoloured) portuguese subnational flags are not allowed to have variations without arms: plain flags always carry the coat of arms.
