Coat of arms

The arms are Sable over a base wavy Argent and Azure, a lattice Or in chief superimposed by a Paschal Lamb Argent, in base by a bridge argent masoned Sable. Mural crown argent with four visible towers (usually meaning town rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "SÃO JOÃO DO CAMPO".
The Paschal Lamb is an attribute of St. John the Baptist, the base wavy is probably alluding to Mondego River.
Source: I spotted this flag on 27 September 2013 in the town hall of Coimbra.

Flag and coat of arms were approved on 4 July 1997, published in Diário da República: III Série.
