White flag with blue saltire and Christ Knights’
Order cross on the center, filled white. On the hoist, top and fly
quadrants, the letters "C", "F" e "B", respectively, in blue sans capitals.
This design, but for the letters, follows the emblem (except that the emblem
shows yellow letters); it is in my opinion one of the best looking portuguese
sports flags. It might look to the less attentive as some portuguese
naval rank flag or maybe connected to the
Portuguese Air Force, but it is not.

The book Belém! Belém! Belém! As Bodas de Ouro (by Acácio
Rosa; publ. 1967-1969), shows on the cover (illustrated by one Pargana) an
incorrect variation, with black accidentally replacing white for the
background, the filling of the Order cross though white.
