About the Flag

Coat of arms

Shield Gules with base wavy of Argent and Azure, a Paschal Lamb couchant Argent, in dexter chief a Maltese cross Argent. Mural crown Argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "PEDROGÃO PEQUENO".
The base wavy is referring to Zêzere River and its numerous water reservoirs in the area. The Paschal Lamb is an attribute of St. John the Baptist, the local patron saint. The cross is alluding to the Order of the Knights of the Hospital of Saint John of Jerusalem, which had many possesions in the area in the past.
