It is a typical Portuguese communal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a plain yellow field. In spite of the bilingual status (enshrined in the Constitution of 1999), the scroll of the CoA is not bilingual, according to the law (signed in 2007).

Coat of arms

[Silva (Silba) commune (until 2013)] image by Sérgio Horta, 19 Feb 2016

Shield Sable, a blackberry bush Or eradicated of the Same and in chief two hunting bugles respectant Argent roped Or. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letter "SILVA - MIRANDA DO DOURO". In spite of the bilingual status (enshrined in the Constitution of 1999), the scroll of the CoA is not bilingual, according to the law (signed in 2007).
Meaning: Like all toponyms in the municipality, this former commune had two names: Silva Portuguese and Silba in Mirandese (the local syncretic Asturian-Leonese dialect complex, co-official language of Portugal and given a standard orthography); each is the translation of the other and both mean "blackberry" or "bramble", (ultimately from Latin). "silua", "forest" or "grove", taken to mean "thicket", i.e., "bramble" in brad sense; cp. same etymology of Portuguese "selva", "jungle"), which is featured on the arms, thus canting. Also featured on the arms by the bugles is the importance of the local hunting grounds.
