[Aldoar commune (until 2013)] 2:3 image by Sérgio Horta, 20 Jan 2016

It is a typical Portuguese communal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a plain white field.
Klaus-Michael Schneider, 20 Jan 2016

Coat of arms

Shield Gules, a sword and a scimitar Argent-both hilted Or-in saltire, in chief a Maltese cross Argent. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials "ALDOAR - PORTO".
Meaning:
Sword and scimitar are reminding on the numerous battlefields in the region between Christians and Moors. The sword above refers to the fact that in the end the Christians were victorious. Especially the sword is also alluding to St. Martin, the local patron saint. The cross is alluding to the Knights' Order of St. John playing a role within the local reconquest and Christianing.
