About the flag

It is a quite typical portuguese municipal flag, with the coat of arms centered on a background gyronny (city rank) of green and yellow. The coat of arms is argent, a St. James cross between two rudders proper, all between two garbs or tied gules; in point, on mound verd a wavy fess azure fimbriated argent. Mural crown argent with five visible towers (city rank), and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "CIDADE DO MONTIJO". The arms are more or less canting, as "montijo" is an old form for "small hill" (montilho).
