Description of the Flag

In Portugal there is a monarchic party, the PPM, and there is a number of monarchics that do not see themselves reflected in the party. The flag of PPM is very seldom seen, but a modern rendition of the pre-1910 portuguese national flag appears in great numbers whenever the monarchics get together. Recent occasions were: the marriage of D. Duarte, the present dinastic representative of the portuguese royal house (Casa de Bragança) and the baptism of his two childs so far.

I spotted one of these flags side by side with the national flag (a rather strange sighting, considering the politics envolved) and in fact the blue-white was a lot wider than the green-red, not being much longer.

1667-1816 flags (royal arms on plain white) also appear in monarchic gatherings, related to the so called “integralist” branch.
