About the Flag

It is a fairly typical Portuguese municipal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a quartered white and green field (town rank).

Coat of arms

[Castro Daire municipality CoA] image by Sérgio Horta, 13 Nov 1998

Sable, a castle tower argent, open, masoned sable with port and windows sabler, four plants of corn fruited or (vert on arms) and leaved vert. Mural crown with four visible towers argent and white scroll reading "CASTRO DAIRE" in black capitals. In my humble opinion this is one of the nicest portuguese municipal coats of arms.
António Martins-Tuválkin, 13 Nov 1998

Flag and arms were approved on 30 April 1953.
