About the flag

It is a slightly atypical portuguese municipal flag, with the coat of arms centered on a background gyronny (meaning city rank) of yellow and black. The coat of arms is azure a almond tree in bloom trunked or and flowered argent flanked in chief with a christan king’s head dexter and a moor king’s head sinister (which is Algarve’s heraldic griffe). Mural crown argent with five visible towers (city rank)

After becoming a city, the scroll text is no longer set in two lines, being just the city name. (Thus confusing it with the identically named town in Azores…)

Lagoa became a city lin 2002, and its symbols were upgraded accordingly: the arems now has a 5-towered mural crown and the flag background is now a gyronny of yellow and black. Changes are to be expected in the scroll as well; everything else remains the same.
Jorge Candeias, 09 Sep 2003

It had a white scroll reading in black upper case letters "VILA DE LAGOA" and in smaller type in a second line bellow (and this is the atypical part) "ALGARVE" — this is done to tell apart this municipality and town from another Lagoa municipality, in São Miguel island, Azores.

Apart from the text on the scroll, the main difference is the background division: gyronny in the municipal flag, per saltire in the club flag.
