Catió is the seat both of its namesake sector, and of Tombali region. I could not find any data about its current flag use.

Portuguese era municipal flag

Catió former flag
image by António Martins, 15 Jun 2016

Catió was granted a Portuguese-style municipal coat of arms and flag in the 1960s. These can be seen, scanned scanned from [lgh66], at HotW and in the Wikimedia Commons. In the later location, where the quartered background of the flag was clumsily “cleaned up”, uploader Domaleixo states that this flag «may be still in use». Based on what I know of Portuguese former colonies’ municipal flags, I’d say that is highly unlikely.

The flag was quartered (town rank) yellow and blue with the coat of arms on the center. This was Vert an oar (?) Argent bendwise between two sheaves of rice (?) and on a bordure Argent twelve escutcheons Azure charged each with five plates; mural crown argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll reading «VILA DE CATIÓ» in black capitals.
