About the Flag

It is a fairly typical Portuguese municipal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a field gyronny (meaning city rank) of yellow and black.
António Martins-Tuválkin, 12 Aug 1999

Coat of arms

[Loures municipality CoA] image by Sérgio Horta,

The coat of arms is or, a fountain argent lined sable and playing of the second, bordure purpure charged with a garland sable fruited or. Mural crown argent with five visible towers (city rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "LOURES".
António Martins-Tuválkin, 12 Aug 1999

Bordure colour variation

The official tincture for the bordure is probably purple, or maybe red, but a rosy shade is found in almost all sources. Most actual flags are indeed rosy pink, though some (of apparently more accurate manufacturing, being sewn / embroided, instead of printed) show indeed purple. (I live in Loures municipality myself, so I could check in situ how the municipal flag really looks like.)
António Martins-Tuválkin, 12 Aug 1999


Version without Coat of Arms

[Loures municipality plain] 2:3 image by António Martins-Tuválkin, Apr 2010

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


Presentation of Loures

Loures municipality had 199 184 inhabitants in 2000, and is divided in five communes, covering 187 km². It belongs to the Lisboa District and to the old province of Estremadura. The southwestern part of this municipality was detached to create the new Odivelas Municipality.

The new logo replaced the old one in early 2001, following a change in the ruling party. It has though been seldom seen on flags.

Former municipal logo flag

Loures unofficial flag
image by António Martins, 12 Aug 1999

This is the logo flag of Loures municipality. It is completely unofficial, as far as I know, but quite used — not instead, but along with the official flag. This logo, remotely based on the official flag, is in use for a very long time, possibly more than 20 years.
António Martins, 12 Aug 1999

The logo (and, in consequence, the flag based on it) was replaced in early 2001, following a change in the ruling party. The current logo has though been seldom seen on flags — the former logo flag had also been gradually disappearing and giving place to the official municipal flag.
António Martins, 24 Aug 2003
