Former Azueira commune (until 2013)

[Azueira commune (until 2013)] 2:3 image by Sérgio Horta, 28 June 2015

It is a typical Portuguese communal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a field quartered of white and red.
Klaus-Michael Schneider, 28 June 2015

Coat of arms

Shield Gules, two broken chains Or crossed per saltire, in the top quarter an eagle Argent, in each other quarter a grapevine Purpure leaved Argent. Mural crown Argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials: "AZUEIRA".
Meaning:
The broken chains are attributes of St. Peter of the Bonds, because he is the one liberating chained people and prisoners. The agle is reminding on the town's Roman origin and the many archaeological troves proving that origin. The grapevines are symbolizing viticulture, the source of riches of the commune.
