Description

A woman wearing traditional Portuguese clothes and a wide-brimmed hat holds a flag. The banner appears to be entirely red, which is not an accurate representation of the country’s flag. A basket of fruit lies on the ground. The woman is holding a black and white image of a stamp. The stamp has a black “X” on it, with the word “Portugal” inside one of the x’s bars.
