On the right and the left wall of the East Timor national parliament
are hanging traditional weavings, each with the name of one of the
districts. Each district has such a weaving
on the left and the right, but
there are not exactly the same, just similar.

Some, not all, portuguese overseas municipalities recieved arms and
flag in the period 1940-1974, after all metropolitan
municipalities got one. In Portuguese Timor overseas province only
Díli had a flag and a coat of arms, all other 12 municipalities (currently
named districts) being confirmedly flagless.

The Díli municipal flag was white an green gyronny of eight,
with the municipal coat of arms over all: argent, a tree vert between
two arrow-bags, sable; golden mural crown with five visible towers
(overseas province capital city status), and white scroll with uppercase
sans serif "CIDADE DE DÍLI".
