Flag of Portugal 🇵🇹

Flag of Portugal

The Portuguese flag 🇵🇹 is composed of green and red stripe, and the national coat of arms. The stripes don´t have the same width and the center of the coat of arms is placed at the borderline between these two stripes. The red color symbolizes the blood shed during the Portuguese revolution in 1910 and the green color stands for hope. Five blue emblems on a white field are allegedly reminder of five Moorish kings, who the first Portuguese king Afonso Henriques had to defeat. Its cross position points to the Christian tradition. Seven castles on the larger red emblem symbolize the seven castles that Alfons had to conquer. Golden navigation device in the background of the coat of arms refers to the Portuguese past as a colonial power.
