The Flag

The flag of Portugal is a rectangular bicolour with a field vertically divided into two stripes of different width—a green stripe on the hoist, and a larger red stripe on the fly. The current flag represents a sweeping change in the evolution of the Portuguese flag, which had been always closely associated with the royal arms.
