Sal mun. banner

This one is a bit strange: the blue is so light it’s practically indistinguishable from the white. But since banners are ceremonial flags made to be carried around, it just might work, despite the lack of contrast.

The banner of Tarrafal is also blue and white — differing from that of Sal by the order of the colors of the banner (blue-white vs. white-blue) and the shade of blue, which is light in Tarrafal and a very pale light blue, almost white, in Sal.

The arms include one canting element: the two white triangles are two salt cones, and the name of this place means, exactly, "salt" in Portuguese.
