About portuguese sport flags

Sport club’s emblems in Portugal usually resemble partially or completely the arms of the places where they come from. An example of these is Rio Ave (Vila do Conde).
Jorge Candeias, 04 Mar 1999

But there are much worse examples, some even hard to distinguish from the respective municipal flag, like Gupo Desportivo de Lagoa. (Lagoa municipality)
António Martins, 06 Mar 1999

This is also a common phenomenon: the permanence in the club’s emblems of obsolete municipal coats of arms of which the most evident is that of Futebol Clube do Porto.
Jorge Candeias, 04 Mar 1999

These flags can be seen at the clubs’ facilities, where competitions are being held and flown by adepts in many other locations throughout the country (and beyond it — seems that portuguese emmigrant abroad, some 3 or 4 million, may not know who’s the President of Portugal, but they sure know who’s on the “11” of their favourite soccer team...)
António Martins, 26 Jul 1999

Some portuguese sport flags are described by Adolf Durán in “Portugal: Banderas Corporativas (II)” Banderas 43 (1992.06): 26-27 [drn92], not without error.
