Current flag

The Municipality of Mosteiros has new symbols from unknown date (after 2006).

Flag: The Mosteiros Municipality Flag consists of two overlapping rectangles, arranged lengthwise. The upper rectangle is colored red and the lower rectangle is colored green. Each occupies an area equivalent to half the flag. In the centre, over the two rectangles, the image of the municipality's coat of arms and a white band with the inscription “Municipio dos Mosteiros”.

The image of a volcano on a blue surface, both bounded by a green colored circle. Three green links occupying the upper part of the composition, followed by ten yellow five-pointed stars, symmetrically arranged in two groups of five and two coffee branches with ripe fruits. Centered at the base of the composition, in capital letters, the words “ILHA DO FOGO”. At the top, from right to left, the words “Camara Municipal dos Mosteiros”. Second circle also colored green.

The municipality of Mosteiros, in Fogo Island, Cabo Verde, has a red flag with its logo over all surrounded by the usual 10 yellow five-pointed stars (from 8 to 11 o’clock and from 1 to 4 o’clock), by a white scroll reading "Município dos Mosteiros - Cabo Verde" in black sans-serif capitals (below), and by three overlapping white ellipses (12 o’clock).

Emblem detail

Mosteiros mun. embl. image by António Martins, 05 April 2006

The logo itself is circular and shows a sloped seaside landscape in shades of light blue and grey, with a snow-covered peak and four brown coffee beans at the observer’s right in foreground, stacked 2+2. All items outlined in black.

Since "mosteiros" / "musteru" means "monasteries", this is not a canting logo, as no building is visible on it. Coffee, on the other hand, is the municipality’s major produce.
