António Martins, 13 January 1998
This proposal for a colonial flag was made by the heraldist Franz Paul Almaida Langhans. It is the Portugese flag with the Macau shield in the lower part of the fly (in the pattern of Mozambique and others). The shield of Macau is the same as other provinces except that the upper left part is white with five shields with the five white quinas (circles). In the lower center are waves of green (symbolic of the sea in Portugal) and white. In the upper right of the shield is a blue background with a golden dragon bearing a blue shield with five white quinas. The shield can be seen in the image of the Macau army commandant.
