Rules of portuguese communal flags

Communal flags in Portugal follow the same rules as municipal — in fact, unless you have an atlas built in your brain or it is writen on the flag itself, communal and municipal flags are virtually indistinguishable! The flag pattern (quartered or gyronny) and the number of castles on the mural crown of the coat of arms (3, 4 or 5) do indicate the seat's rank: village (aldeia), town (vila) and city (cidade) — but that is a not so clear indication, since some cities and most towns (new ones) are not municipality seats... So, one is never sure.
António Martins, 6 March 1998
