About the Flag

It is a quite typical Portuguese municipal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a green and yellow gyronny (city rank) background.

Coat of arms

The arms are wavy per fess Vert and Argent two Dolphins urinant conjoined Or lined Sable. Mural crown argent with five visible towers (city rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "CIDADE DE ESPINHO". The coat of arms is noteworthy for being one of the few examples of civic arms in Portugal making use of real heraldry.
António Martins-Tuválkin, 11 Jan 2007

This flag and coat of arms were adopted and published in the official journal Diário do Governo : III Série in 1986.11.06, but they probably were in use since much earlier, for Espinho was upgraded from town rank in 1973.06.16 and there were but trivial changes made to the previous flag (q.v.).

Former flag

Before the upgrading of the municipality seat to city status, in 1973.06.16 (and officially up to 1986.11.06), the mural crown had only four towers (town rank) and the scroll read "VILA DE ESPINHO". This flag and arms were adopted and published in the official journal Diário do Governo : III Série in 1928.05.32.
