About the flag

This is the flag of the internationally known soccer club Futebol Clube do Porto, showing the older arms of the city over a blue old-fashioned foot ball, all on spanish fess (1+2+1) of blue, white, blue.
António Martins, 06 Mar 1999

According to the club’s official website, the current emblem was created in october 1922, by club’s player Augusto Baptista Ferreira alias Simplício, defacing the previous emblem with the contemporary Oporto city arms. Therefore, from 1922 to 1935 the club and the city shared fairily similar symbols.

Still to be discovered are the 1893-1910 emblem(s), if any; the adoption date of the color blue as the club’s color; and the adoption date of the flag itself, plus any previous versions.

On the dragon’s color

It is interesting to note that the dragon, the mythical club pet of Futebol Clube do Porto, is taken from the crest of the 1837-1935 Oporto arms (in turn taken from the national greater arms), added to the club’s emblem only in 1922, 29 years after the foundation of the club; its color, moreover, is green, as any proper heraldic wyvern (serpe) should — and not blue, something which typically upsets the typical supporter:

Green is footballwise associated with Porto’s rival, Sporting, and thus the dragon is often depicted in alternative colors, either in shameless blue or in more discrete variants, such as golden. Anders Tornberg’s image of Porto’s logo is an example of that:

According to the club’s official website, Futebol Clube do Porto was founded in 1893.10.28, but only in 1910 an internal regulation defined the club’s emblem: a blue football lined in white and with lettering "F.C.P."
