It is a typical Portuguese communal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a plain purple field.

Coat of arms

Shield Argent, two groves Vert ordered per fess between a fleur-de-lis Azure in chief and a watermill's wheel Purpure in base. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials: "MATAS - OURÉM".
Meaning:
The fleur-de-lis is an attribute of St. Mary, the local patron saint. The groves (Port.: matas) are canting elements. The wheel is representing the many watermills still existing in the commune.
