Beira city flag

Beira, the second largest city in Mozambique has adopted a municipal flag, as reported earlier this month according to Lusovex local vexillologist, António Kitabulu Teixeira.

It is a vertical triband of dark yellow, white and medium blue, with the municipal emblem on the central panel. This is a Kenya-style African shield which depicts a cityscape with a large rising (or setting?) sun behind a local modern building on a green ground; in the foreground a sector of a large cogwheel patterned with concentric wavy blue rings on white; on its dexter edge, overlapping to the green area, a fouled anchor, black with white rope. Red scroll over the cogwheel, reading in golden capitals "CIDADE DA BEIRA", above "REPÚBLICA DE MOÇAMBIQUE" (?), in smaller type; the tips of the scroll are wrapped around the edges of the shield, in an M.C.Escher-like fashion. The edge of the shield itself is decorated with black and white counterchanged crenellated pattern above and below, the mid section (left and right) being patterned in what seems to be coiled rope.
