About the flag

Photos of athletes running in 2017 under the municipal banner (litterally; the others show allegiance to clubs) show that the flag is white with centered emblem. The ratio seems to be around 5:7, less oblong than most (~3:2) and even less than the national flag

Emblem detail

[emblem] image by António Martins, 07 July 2017

The municipal emblem of São Miguel features the usual twofold arch of ten golden stars with a chain segment on its apical gap, in this case made of four green links. As usual, this arrangement surrounds the upper part of the emblem while the lower is surrounded by a stylized scroll, in this case red with white underside and black letters. These are black sans serif capitals and read "MUNICÍPIO DE SÃO MIGUEL". The main element of the emblem (its shield, when seen as a coat of arms), is, as usual, round, and features a tree whence a scales hangs above wavy waters against a sky background. The scales are red with golden edging, the tree is naïf/stylized to a light green ellipsis atop a brown rectangle, all on a background horizontally divided in two halves: Lighter blue above light blue, the latter patterned with thick white sinusoidal lines.

According to this offtopic blogpost in an anonymous foodie weblog, the municipal emblems of São Miguel and São Lourenço dos Órgãos were both created by the same designer (the anonymous foodie herself).
