About the Flag

It is a typical Portuguese communal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a plain white background (village rank) .

Coat of arms

The arms are Purpure a chuch Argent garnished sable. In chief a Paschal Lamb Proper. Mural crown argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "SÃO JOÃO BAPTISTA".
The building probably is St. John's local parish church, whilst the Paschal Lamb is his attribute.
Source: I spotted this flag in the local tourist office on 1 October 2013.
