About the flag

It is a fairly typical portuguese municipal flag, with the coat of arms centered on a plain green background. These flag and arms (still unofficial) are trivial changes upon upgrading to city status in 1988.04.14 from the original flag and arms, with five visible towers and scroll reading "Cidadde do Fundão".
António Martins, 28 Mar 2007 and 29 Mar 2007
