About the flag

This flag is a almost only a logo-on-background ty of flag. It’s a (presumably) 2:3 horizontal tricolour of gold-white-blue in proportions roughly 1:6:1. In the white stripe, it has the logo of the Algarve Tourism Region above "ALGARVE" in hollow blue lettering. The logo features a blue stylized algavan chimney with a blue border around it, over four coloured lines red, yellow, blue and green. This flag is quite seldom seen around here. I’ve only seen it flying in the the Tourism Region HQs here in Faro, and even that only from time to time. I think it’s more usual to find the poles empty than to see flags in them. The logo, however, is ubiquous…
