About the flag

It is a quite typical portuguese municipal flag, with the coat of arms centered on a plain green background. The coat of arms is argent, a tree (cork oak?) proper (see bellow) between two fleurs de lis gules (but see bellow). Mural crown argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "VILA DE AZAMBUJA".
António Martins, 12 Aug 1999


Version without the coat of arms

Plain (monocolored) portuguese subnational flags are not allowed to have armless variations: plain flags always carry the coat of arms.
Jorge Candeias, 18 Jul 1999
