About the Flag

It is a fairly typical Portuguese municipal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a field quartered white over black.
António Martins-Tuválkin, 27 Oct 1998

Coat of arms

[Sertã municipality CoA] image by Sérgio Horta, 27 Oct 1998

The coat of arms is Gules, a castle tower Argent above a chevronel wavy inverted Azure fimbriated Argent, chief Or a frying pan Sable, between two templar crosses: dexter the “round” one, usual in Portugal, and sinister, the older one, similar to Malta’s. The scroll is unusal for it reads in two lines instead of one: "SARTAGO STERNIT SARTAGINE HOSTES / VILA DA SERTÃ".
Meaning:
The first line on scroll is latin and means «Sertã defeats its enemies by a frying pan». This thing about frying pans is that "sertã" is a bit archaic word in portuguese for precisely frying pan. These are “canting arms”!…
António Martins-Tuválkin, 27 Oct 1998

Flag and arms adopted and published in Diário do Governo : I Série on 23 January 1936
