Portuguese Youth / Mocidade Portuguesa

[Mocidade Portuguesa]
by António Martins, 04 Dec 1998

Flag of Mocidade Portuguesa, the regime's youth organization. Its is a banner of the arms, very similar to the royal flag of 1385-1433, but with only five bezants in each eschuteon (normalization to current heraldry) and with these in pentagonal shape (due to the late art nouveau / fascist-modernist inclinations of the regime artists). There were probably a lot more flags of this organization (rank and unit banners), but I have no information about it.
