Sheraton Lisbon Hotel (for years the city’s tallest building) flies a blue flag
with large white emblem centered.

This flag has been reported both in the US and Portugal.

I recently saw a TV report dealing with one Sheraton hotel in Portugal where
the attached flag was visible. It's a white flag with a golden S inside laurel

way Sheraton flags look like all over the world, but at least it seems to be how
they look like in Portugal.

Sheraton seems to use a wide variety of flags: Here in Bal Harour FL (US) it's
blue with a white "S in wreath" logo (centered). In Chicago it was a blue-white

I doubt it's each hotel, as I've seen the striped design (with a dark

often than hotels run out of their flags, so there's a variety.

The "Uruguay-style" Sheraton flag was used on at least one hotel around
