[Anta commune (until 2013)] 2:3 image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 4 Dec 2015

It is a typical Portuguese communal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a field quartered of white and green.

Coat of arms

Shield Argent with base wavy of Vert and Argent, a dolmen Azure, in chief a mitre Or garnished Vert and scarved Gules, a sinister bendy millstone Sable and a bunch of corn cobs Or leaved Vert and tied Gules. Mural crown Argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials "VILA DE ANTA".
Meaning:
The mitre is an attribute of St. Martin, the local patron saint. The millstone is reminding on the numerous mills existing on the quais of Anta in the past. The bunch of corn cobs is symbolizing the importance of agriculture. The dolmen is symbolizing the very old age of local settlements in this location. Due to the green waves the base is representing the Atlantic.

Former Guetim commune (until 2013)

[Guetim commune (until 2013)] 2:3 image by Sérgio Horta, 14 Apr 2010

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

Coat of arms

[Guetim commune CoA (until 2013)] image by Sérgio Horta, 14 Apr 2010

The arms are Or a latin cross patty Gules voided Argent flanked in chief by two maize ears Gules leaved Vert and in base by two bunches of grapes purpure leaved Vert and a base wavy of six Vert and Argent. Mural crown argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "GUETIM".
Meaning:
The etymology of Guetim is obscure and none of the elements of the CoA is canting - the cross of the Christ Knights' Order (blazoned as "in 18th cent. style") relates to local church jewllery (as given to Sérgio Horta by the local government and on < http://www.jf-guetim.pt/freguesia/historia3.html > the page about heraldry at the official website), as maize and and grapes / wine symbolize local farming; the silvery and *green* wavy base does symbolize the sea, but the nearest seaside is 3 km away (far fetched for an entity under two sq. kilometers!) and located outside the commune (see map in the official website < http://www.jf-guetim.pt/localizacao.html >) though Sérgio Horta quotes the local government to state that it "symbolizes the Altantic Ocean, which washes the commune" - yet it does not.
