About the company

State owned airline company.
António Martins, 13 Jan 2005

The company was first named Transportes Aéreos Portugueses (something like "portuguese air transport"), abbreviated TAP. In 1981, along with a redesign of logo and livery, the name was change to "TAP - Air Portugal". In March 2005, a new visual identy redesign brought yet a new name: "TAP Portugal".

About the flag

The company flag, (which I had never saw before, though the logo has been quite conspicuous in Portugal) shows the logo in white on red with a narrow (~1/4) stripe along the top of the flag.

The lettering is below the logo; both are set to the hoist.

Current logo (2005-)

Flag logo (1981-2005)

This logo, adopted in the early 1980’ies, is itself inspired by the national flag — something smaller green and something red bigger. This pattern also in the airliner livery (on line example 1 and example 2).
