About the flag

It is a fairily typical portuguese municipal flag, with the coat of arms centered on a background white and red gyronny (city rank). These arms and flag were adopted upon the upgrade of the municipality seat to city status in 1988.03.11 (though apparently not made official yet) and are a trivial change of the former arms and flag.
