About the flag

Sporting Club de Portugal (yes indeed the bit "Sporting Club" is in english, the late 19th cent. lingua franca of soccer), one the most important soccer clubs of Lisbon and of Portugal. (Oh, it’s not only a soccer club, it has teams in other sports too — it’s athletics and roller skate hockey are world famous too. But soccer gets, as usual, the lion’s share.)

The logo is a green cartouche bordered in white and outlined in green chaged with a white lion batalant facing dexter. Above the cartouche (as a crest?), the lettering "SCP" set in a fantasy, top heavy font.

I believe the cartouche should be bordered in yellow, not in white. And the same for the lion. The letters are white.

The flag is a 2:3 green field with the logo of the club centered on it, the only changes being the color of the letters, white instead of green, and the absence of the outline — for obvious reasons, since the background on the flag is green. What I’d really like to know is about the reverse of the flag: does the lion keep facing the hoist or not? And are the letters correct for reading or not?

As usual, there’s a lot of unofficial flags around, both low quality versions of the club’s official flag and totaly different, unofficial designs, particularly in all sorts of combinations of white, green and black, the colours of the club’s jerseys.

New flag?

Sporting got recently a new logo, quite unfit to sit on a green background without changes. I wonder how this affect the club’s official flag.
