About the flag

Corvo, by the way, means "crow", which makes the coat of arms semi-canting.

Apart from the goshawk, another bird that has some meaning in azorean toponymy and vexillology is the Crested Cormorant (Phalacrocorax aristotelis), in portuguese Corvo-do-mar-preto (meaning "black sea crow") — which gave the name of the smallest and NW-most island and shows in its flag.
António Martins, 14 Sep 1999
