About the flag

It is a quite typical portuguese municipal flag, with the coat of arms centered on a background quarterly (meaning town rank) of white and green. The coat of arms is sable, on a mountain vert, a castle argent masoned sable, door and windows gules, flagged of St. George on each of the three towers from cross-poles or, bordure or, a wreath vert bounded gules. Mural crown argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "VILA DE MONFORTE".
António Martins-Tuválkin, 31 July 1999

"Monforte" comes from "monte forte", meaning "strong hill", so these are canting arms.
António Martins-Tuválkin, 1 Sep 2001
