Long Description:
The flag of the municipality of Olhão, in Southern Portugal, stands together with the national flag and the flag of the marina. They are in a public area, always accessible.

The phrase in the flag says Olhão Cidade da Restauração, which means Olhão, town of the Restoration, a reference to the role of the town in the Restoration War, against Spain (middle 17th Century). The flag of the municipality was created in 1928.

The city keeps a website with a great description of the municipality heraldic. Unfortunately it's in Portuguese, but Google Translate or a similar translation engine might help. Consult here:
