It’s not just that this flag is pinkish-purple. Well, that’s a big part of it. What really weirds me out are the two floating heads. The bearded king and the Arab fellow with a resplendent yellow keffiyeh. Just floating there above the castle like spectres. It might symbolize that both Christians and Muslims watch your every move when you live in Loulé. Or perhaps it’s because Loulé, Portugal is the beheading capital of Europe, and that they are equal opportunity beheaders. Also, why is a a tree growing out of tallest turret of the castle? For scale, the crazy heads are the same size as the tree. Is it a bonsai? Are they giant heads? And why is the center castle capped by another arched castle? Mysterious as the two disembodied heads.
