Portugal Flag

$13.61

The Portuguese flag was created by Manuel Guedes de Brito in the year 1891 and officially adopted on June 30, 1911. The flag is rectangular in shape, with green on the left and red on the right side of the flag. In between these two colors is a small yellow castle representing one of the many castles that dot the Portuguese landscape.

The red and green embody hope for the future and blood during battle.

This flag was granted by the heraldic authority of Portugal on November 9, 1911. It has a ratio of 2:3[1] and the national coat of arms is in the center. The Portuguese Coat of Arms represents the armillary sphere has a diameter equal to one-fourth of the total length of the flag. The castles (Portuguese: castelos) are yellow (or gold) with green windows on and port and star patterns on them. They symbolize the nine medieval castles in which Portugal Afonso Henriques was born.

The blue shields represent the five Moorish Kings who were defeated by the King of Portugal.

The first Portuguese flag was the flag of King Afonso and his successors in the Portuguese monarchy, with the addition of a red border or "flame" on the coat of arms. It is thought that this red flame may have had some religious symbolism since it could be found in various ecclesiastical banners in the Middle Ages.

The oldest preserved Portuguese flag, which belonged to the city of Beja, dates from 1385. The second oldest one is that of Leiria (1386). The third oldest one is that of the Order of Christ (1387), while the fourth oldest one belongs to Lisbon and dates from 1497. There is no evidence for any other flags prior to these four being made.
