Coat of arms

[Freixo de Espada à Cinta municipality CoA] image by Sérgio Horta, 3 Aug 2007

The arms are Purpure, an ash Or leaved Vert between two swords Or pointing downwards, the whole between two inescutcheons Argent each charged with five inescutcheons Azure each charged with 13 plates set 2:3:2:3:2:1 (Portugal ancient). Mural crown Argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "VILA DE FREIXO DE ESPADA À CINTA".
António Martins-Tuválkin, 2 Aug 2007

Flag and arms adopted and published in the official journal Diário do Governo : I Série on 27 April 1935
Meaning:
The municipalities name means something like "Ash with sword at belt", thus the arms are canting, but the actual etymology may be different.
Last year there was a lecture about this coat of arms in a session organized by the Lusitanian Heraldry Academy.

Version without Coat of Arms

Plain (monocoloured) Portuguese subnational flags are not allowed to have variations without arms: plain flags always carry the coat of arms.
Jorge Candeias, 18 July 1999
