The portuguese traditional seafaring symbol, the cross of the Order of Christ, did not escape this tendence, although not black on red background: The Ordem Nova (New Order), a “National Socialist” style movement operating in Portugal in 1978-1982 used a blue flag with this cross (red) on a white disc.

Techically, this was not a party, but a neo-fascist movement connected with groups of “skinheads” and football supporters. After the murder of a black man in Lisbon by skinheads, they where extint by court order (Portuguese constitution prohibits organized movements that promote fascist ideology). They used a flag with a white field and a black [celtic] cross.
Jorge Candeias, 1997 Oct 26
