About the flag

The municipality of Mosteiros, in Fogo Island, Cape Verde, has a green and red quartered flag with its logo over all surrounded by 10 yellow five-pointed stars (from 8 to 11 o’clock and from 1 to 4 o’clock), by a white scroll reading "Município dos Mosteiros - Cabo Verde" in black sans-serif capitals (below), and by three overlapping white ellipses (12 o’clock).

Since "mosteiros" means "monasteries", this is not a canting logo, as no building is visible on it. Coffee, on the other hand, is the municipality’s major produce.

The flag is known in small rigid triangular hanging form (galhardete), shown on line, and also visible at the Mayor’s office. This usage may be restricted, as on this photo of the local town hall two of the three flag poles erected are bare, only the national flag being hoisted.

The logo itself is circular and shows a sloped seaside landscape in shades of light blue and greys, with a snow-covered peak and four brown coffee beans at the observer’s right in foreground, stacked 2+2. All items outlined in black.
