Feira Nova supermarkets

[Feira Nova flag]
by António Martins, 07 Nov 2003

Feira Nova (new fair), portuguese supermarket chain; the company flag is simply the logo on a white rectangular flag.

Plain orange flagoid

[Feira Nova flagoid#1]
by António Martins, 07 Nov 2003

The logo is intersting in that it consists of a stylized view of many flags flying, these being orange triangular pennants. A single orange triangle is used ad nauseam in Feira Novaʼs advertising material, as price tag marker, leaflet ornament etc.

Orange and white flagoid

[Feira Nova flagoid#2]
by António Martins, 07 Nov 2003

Another interpretation of the logo could be of two triangular pennants flying with the nearmost obscuring the farthest, both orange with a large white triangle throughout and pointing to the hoist, itself charged with a smaller orange triangle pointing to the fly, in fractal fashion.

Docapesca (fish harbours and wholesale markets)
Docapesca — Portos e Lotas, S. A.

[Docapesca flag] by Jorge Candeias, 01 Dec 2003

Docapesca is a state-owned company that manages fishing port facilities and first sale fish markets all over Portugal. They have local headquarters in all the major ports and, in the Lisbon area, they have headquarters in a very valuable terrain by the sea in the Cascais bay. When the current government decided to put forward a candidacy to the organization of the Americaʼs Cup (a sort of world cup in sailing, for those who do not know), it decided to close those facilities and promote on that place a luxury urbanization. The workers fought against the measure, fearing unemployment, and saying that the Americaʼs Cup was nothing but a pretext to kick them in the butt. Since Lisbon already lost for Valencia the organization of the Cup and the government already said that the plan to close Docapesca is to go ahead, they seem to be right.

Anyway, they struggled (and will probably go on struggling) and in a news report of that struggle there was a flag. Odds are that this isnʼt the official flag of the company — in Portugal official flags are never vertical, as far as I know —, but can be pretty close. Itʼs a white vertical flag with the DOcapesca logo in the center. I used the proportions 3:2, but this, of course, is not certain. About the colours, I remember that the flag had very light shades of blue, with very low contrast with the white field. But if you go to the site of Docapesca (at, the shades are a lot darker.

The logo shows a stylized leaping fish, making up the initials "DP".

[Europa-América Publishers]

It shows the company monogram (double "E" over an "A") white on the red central panel of a vert triband whose lateral panels are horizontally divided in three blue parts — light, medium and dark, from top to bottom.

Lisbon Home-owners Association
Associação de Lisbonense Proprietários

[ALP flag]
by António Martins, 17 Sep 2003

The Lisbon Home-owners Association / Associação de Lisbonense Proprietários deals with rental tenants on behalf of the home owners. They have a white flag with their logo on it — a white "ALP" art deco monogram on a blue disc (which appears as a standing ellipse). They use the flag proeminently at their HQ in Lisbon (Príncipe Real sq.).
