[Cascais commune (until 2013)] 2:3 image by António Martins-Tuválkin, modified by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 30 July 2015

It is a typical Portuguese communal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a plain red field.
Klaus-Michael Schneider,30 July 2015

Coat of arms

Shield Argent a castle Gules upon basement Sable stoned argent, in base a fess wavy Argent charged with two barrulets wavy Vert covered by a fishing net Or. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading "FREGUESIA DE CASCAIS" in black upper case letters.
Meaning:
Though there is no widely known castle in the municipality, it must stand for something in the coat of arms — perhaps for the casino and all the more than one century old turf centre, which Cascais is (the municipality includes well known Estoril). The fishing net stands for the local fishing traditions. In fact the commune shares the symbols of the municipality, the only differences are in scroll ("FREGUESIA" instead of "VILA") and mural crown (three instead of four towers).
António Martins-Tuválkin, 12 Sep 2003 and Klaus-Michael Schneider,30 July 2015

Former Estoril Commune (until 2013)

[Estoril commune (until 2013)] 2:3 image by Sérgio Horta, 16 Oct 2010

It is a typical Portuguese communal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a plain yellow field.

Coat of arms

[Estoril commune CoA (until 2013)] image by Sérgio Horta, 16 Oct 2010

The arms are Azure over a base wavy of Argent and Vert, on a featureless sun Or five inescutcheons Azure set in cross each charged with five plates Argent set in saltire. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "ESTORIL".
Meaning:
The base wavy refers to the sea, the sun perhaps to the beaches, and the inescutcheons are a Portuguese national symbol.
António Martins-Tuválkin, 16 Oct 2010

Flag and arms adopted and published in the official journal Diário da República: III Série on 3 February 2004
