[Pousafoles do Bispo commune (until 2013)] 2:3 image by Sérgio Horta, 5 Mar 2016

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

Coat of arms

Shield Or, a crozier paly Purple flanked by two lozenges Sable, in base bellows Azure garnished Sable and Argent. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials "POUSAFOLES DO BISPO".
Klaus-Michael Schneider, 5 Mar 2016
Meaning:
this is canting heraldry: "do Bispo" means "of the Bishop", and "pousafoles" is a compound word including "fole", that means "bellows" (I think "pousafoles" is a device to hold a bellows when not in use, but I could not confirm it).

I couldn't find any flag information.

Coat of arms

[Pena Lobo commune CoA (until 2013)] image located by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 5 Mar 2016

Shield Vert, a wolf passant Or, armed, eyed and tongued Gules between a sinister facing, fessy pen Argent stemmed Gules in chief and a mountain issuant Argent lined Sable in base. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials "PENA LOBO".
Meaning:
Pen (Port.: pena) and wolf (Port.: lobo) are canting elements. It's even better, it's canting and punning: One of the three current meanings of Portuguese pena is feather (the other current meanings are not objects, less easy to depict), and the actual meaning of pena in this toponym (and indeed in practically all Portuguese toponyms including the word stem "pena") is that of the current, albeit unusual, word penha, a craggy summit. These arms show both the actual meaning of pena and its apparent, synchronic, shallow interpretation.

Former Lomba commune (until 2013)

I couldn't find any flag information.

Coat of arms

[Lomba commune CoA (until 2013)] image located by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 5 Mar 2016

Shield Azure, issuant from base a mountain Vert crowned by a haystack Or, flanked by a paly pitchfork Argent bladed Sable at dexter and a paly rake Argent at sinister. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank)and white scroll with inscription in black initials "LOMBA - SABUGAL".
Meaning:
Portuguese _lomba_ means hillock, or even a bump on the road, so this is another case of canting arms.
