In Portugal there is a monarchic party, the PPM,
and there is a number of monarchics that do not see themselves reflected in
the party. The flag of PPM is very seldom seen, but a modern rendition of
the pre-1910 portuguese national flag appears in
great numbers whenever the monarchics get together. Recent occasions were:
the marriage of D. Duarte, the present dinastic representative of the
portuguese royal house (Casa de Bragança) and the baptism of his two
childs so far.
