About the Flag

It is a typical Portuguese communal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a plain green field.

Coat of arms

Shield Argent, four pears Gules leaved Vert ordered 3:1. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "PERELHAL".
The arms are canting. "perelho" is a smalli, wild pear, and thus "perelhal" would mean "wild pear grove".

Flag and arms published in the official journal Diário da República: III Série on 19 June 1997
