Presentation

Boavista Futebol Clube is a club from the Boavista neighborhood in the city of Oporto, the portuguese second city. It existed as a neighborhood club, playing in regional championships or in the 3rd nacional division until late 70s, when a new and ambitious leadership took over. Soon, the club was in the 1st division, later 1st League, and in the 90s it began fighting for the 4th place and for the Cup, becoming thus a regular in european competitions. Last year, the club won the League for the first time, becoming the 5th club to win the top portuguese football competition, after Benfica, Porto, Sporting and Belenenses (one title, a long time ago). Boavista, by the way, is a toponym that is relativaly frequent in Portugal; it’s a contraction of "Boa Vista", that translates as "Good [=Fair] View".

About the flag

The flag is reminiscent of the finish flag in racing: a 2:3 chequered flag, with 4×6 black and white squares and a white 2×2 canton charged with the club’s emblem, a quite heraldical crowned shield, also chequered in black and white, with a black chef containing the letters "BFC". As usual, a number of variations are used by the fans, but this is the flag that appears in press-conferences and the like, so I believe it’s the official one.
