About the Flag

It is a fairly typical Portuguese municipal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a black and white gyronny (city rank) background.
António Martins-Tuválkin, 6 June 2007

These arms and flag were adopted upon the upgrade of the municipality seat to city status on 2 July 1993 and are a trivial change of the former arms, which included four visible crown towers (town rank); the previous background was plain white, so the flag change was not trivial.
