About the flag

It is a quite typical portuguese municipal flag, with the coat of arms centered on a background gyronny (city rank) of yellow and purple. The coat of arms is argent, a tree (what kind?) proper between two grapes, fruited purple; chief azure, a ring or between two fleurs-de-lis of the same. Mural crown argent with five visible towers (city rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "CIDADE DE CANTANHEDE".

The ring has a puple gemstone on it, turned upwards.
