Former symbols

[Oliveira do Hospital(town) municipality] 2:3 image by Sérgio Horta, 6 Aug 2007

The current arms and flag were adopted upon the upgrade of the municipality seat to city status in 1993.07.02 and are a trivial change of the former arms, which included four visible crown towers (town rank), and of the former flag, which was white and purple quarterly.
Meaning:
"_Oliveira do hospital_" means "hospital's olive tree", a reference which is present on the arms. Note that the hospital in question is not in the modern sense of the word, but rather the Order of the Knights Hospitaller, which were granted local territory after its conquest from the Moorish.

The current flag and coat of arms adopted and published in the official journal Diário do Governo : III Série in 2003.10.31. The former version was adopted and published in the official journal Diário do Governo : I Série in 1938.09.20 and had on the scroll the lettering "VILA DO OLIVEIRA DO HOSPITAL".
