Flag of Portugal

Flag of Portugal

The green symbolizes hope for the future; the red symbolizes the blood of the nation.

In the middle is the Portuguese coat of arms.

A white shield, containing five small blue shields with white dots, which represent the five Moorish kings who were defeated by the first King of Portugal.

Behind the coat of arms is an armillary sphere - a navigational aid from the days of the Discoveries
