About the flag

The municipality of Mosteiros, in Fogo Island, Cabo Verde, has a red flag with its logo over all surrounded by the usual 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).

The banner, in small rigid pentagonal hanging form (what in Portuguese is usually called a galhardete), is quartered green and red; shown on line, and also visible at the Mayor’s office.

Emblem detail

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.

Since "mosteiros" / "musteru" 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.
