About the flag

It is a quite typical portuguese municipal flag, with the coat of arms centered on a background quarterly (meaning town rank) of yellow and black. The coat of arms is argent, a wild boar sable passant, under a large sword-cross of Santiago gules itself chaged with a pelican or in his piety and flanqued by two towers sable with doors and windows void, dexter and sinister two trees fruited or, domed vert and trunked and rooted sable, in point a wavy fess azure. Mural crown argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "VILA DE GRÂNDOLA". I have no special information about the coat of arms, except that the Santiago Cross (here depicted in red instead of purple, as usual in other coats of arms, and charged with the pelican, yet another oddity) relates to the warrior monk order of the same name. The wavy fess stands for the Sado river.
António Martins, 31 Jul 1999


Presentation of Grândola

Grândola municipality had 13 260 inhabitants in 1990, and it is divided in 5 communes, covering 807 km². It belongs to the Setúbal District and to the old province of Alentejo. The famous ballad Grândola, vila morena, used to signal the beggining of the 1974.04.25 revolution, was indeed an ommage to this town.
António Martins, 31 Jul 1999 and 06 Aug 2001
