About the flag

We do know that flags for all emblems exist, as the legal frame is the same for both kinds of symbols.

Emblem detail

[emblem] image by António Martins, 15 November 2017

It includes the usual circular “shield”, the usual scroll with toponym (this time blue with black sans serif capitals and forked tips, very stylized), the usual ten stars in two half arcs and the chain links between them above the disc: in this case they are three green links. The circular “shield” has a thick dark red edging surrounding a sunrise/sunset scene, with a large red roman cross hanging on the sky above the sun, a white and light blue wave in the foreground, overlapping a sliver of land on the dexter side, whereon a banana tree (?) stands; opposite to the tree, also hanging on the sky, a large black semiquaver. (Large image of the seal online.)
