The eagle was armed Sable and tongued Gules and was gorged with a crown Or (in fact a double coronet). That was exactly, what I spotted in 2013.

My source, a friend’s friend some years ago, was not very interested in flags — but as a local she should have minimal reliability. The flag was described as being «blue and green with the logo on it» and I got all interested, assuming that "logo" would mean here "coat of arms" and a portuguese municipal flag background of green and blue would be something noteworthy (back then I didn’t knew the official flag).

António Martins, 22 Aug 1999

It is interesting to note that, in this almost unique case where the official coat of arms uses a charge seldom in portuguese civic heraldry, while the (unofficial) logo uses three motives almost ubiquous in portuguese civic heraldry: castle, grapes, and wave…
