About the flag

The company logo was very recently changed: now a red square with a kind of smile, white, on it. The company name changed to Energias de Portugal ("energies" replacing "electricity").

This flag shows an unreadable obverse ("qbɘ"!).

1st version of the new flag

The new logo has been steadily replacing the old one, incl. on flags, which are white with the logo in orange and lettering in black (set in something like bold Arial Rounded).
António Martins, 09 Sep 2004

This version of the logo, orange on white with black lettering, was abbandoned in sometime later (perhaps due to unwanted similarity with Galp?) and changed to white on red.

Previous flag (198X-2004)
as Electricidade de Portugal

EDP - Electricidade de Portugal (Electricity of Portugal), was created in the early 1980ies as a state owned company amalgamating preexisting private and public regional companies. It was recently open to private share holding and bound to be split in many sectorial private or semi-private companies. All these operate more or less independently under the brand "Grupo EDP" (the holding company), which is a semioticly strong presence and influence for most of them. (The group as a whole is one of the largest companies in Portugal.) The main part of this semiotic presence is the EDP logo, recreated some twelve yars ago, featuring a stylized turbine (a tri-radial, rotationally symmetrical element) and the lettering "EDP" in bold italic capitals of a sans face; the lettering is some times ommited. Company colors are dark blue on white, or the opposite. All this shows in flags, used mostely in company facilities, the official one apparently being the blue logo and lettering on white.

This version was the one chosen for the main entrance of the goup’s HQ recently (re)inaugurated in a central Lisbon plaza.

Variants

I’ve seen also the opposite and also both these variants without the lettering (and perhaps a slightly larger logo).
