About the Flag

It is a typical Portuguese communal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a plain yellow field.

Coat of arms

Shield Vert; a fess wavy Azure fimbriated Argent; in chief two keys in saltire tied Gules, one of them Or and the other Argent; in base a pair of spurs Argent tied Or. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "VÁRZEA DOS CAVALEIROS".
Fess wavy and spurs together are canting, as the commune's name means "water meadow of the riders". The crossed keys are an attribute of St. Peter, the local patron saint.
