Description of the flag

Fogo is a small port town of 805 people located on an island of the same name. According to the town website it was first mapped around 1529 by Diogo Ribeiro, a Portguese sailor working for the Spanish crown. The town was first settled in the early 1700s. As expected, the town has a long maritime history (particularly related to fishing) and is the oldest settlement north of Bonavista Bay.
