About the flag

It is a quite typical portuguese municipal flag, with the coat of arms centered on a background quarterly (meaning town rank) of yellow and green. The coat of arms is argent above a bush crowned vert trunked sable and fruited or a St. James sword-cross purple between two bunches of grapes fruited of the same and leaved of the first. Mural crown argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "VILA DE MOITA".

"Moita" means "bush" in Portuguese thus these being canting arms.
