According to the constitution that came into force on April 25, 1976 (revised several times), Portugal is a democratic republic. Head of State, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and Chairman of the Supreme Council of National Defense (supervision of military legislation) is the President of the Republic, elected by the people for 5 years (one-time re-election possible). He has a limited right of veto in the legislative process and can dissolve parliament. The Council of State supports the President as an advisory body. Legislation lies with the Assembly of the Republic (Assembleia da República), whose maximum of 230 members are elected for 4 years in the proportional representation system (voting age: 18 years). The government, chaired by the prime minister appointed by the president, is accountable to both parliament and the head of state. A constitutional court (13 judges) has existed since 1982 to oversee civil legislation. Check clothesbliss to see Portugal Sunbathing On the Edge of Europe.

National symbols

The national flag was introduced after the 1910 revolution and adopted on June 30, 1911. A green stripe one third of the width of the flag was placed on the leech of the red cloth. The coat of arms was also placed on the dividing line. The green stripe reminds of Heinrich the Navigator, who founded the Portuguese world power, red of the revolution of 1910. – The coat of arms shows a white shield in the middle, which is crossed with five small blue shields. These, in turn, are each set with five silver discs in the form of a diagonal cross. According to tradition, the discs symbolize the five wounds of Christ, in whose name Alfons Heinrich (Alfons I) against the Moors went to the field.
