The new flags of Macau follow the previous ones with an interesting balance of change and non-change: They both show emblems on a plain background, and the emblems themselves are elegant developments of the respective ancestor. Macao City's new flag is also blue, showing a symbol that replaces the angels with doves, supporting a key where the old emblem had the Portuguese shield of arms. The key includes the lotus emblem from the Macao SAR flag and there is a ribbon bellow all (though it seems not to bear any inscription).

The municipal flags of Macau is that the Provisional Macau flag flies at municipal markets and some parks in the Macau Peninsula on Sundays
