The health system in Portugal has undergone great changes.. Recently a great ammount of medical facilities were shut down due to low turn-out, focusing the technology and resources in greater city centers in an attempt to muster better economic-efficient results.. Civil servants are offered health… insurance for the time being, but it is estimated that it will soon be revoked and remand the insurance applications to the private sector.. There was a rule established for maximum allowed cash payment for each day a patient spends at a hospital of 5 euro, not counting major surgery or other significant fees.. Public clinics are substancially cheaper than the private sector, as they are supported partially by the state. For example, I would pay 30 euro for a simple visit in a clinic and only about 2 euro in a state-run facility. (MORE)

The flag of Portugal has a two-color field that's unequally divided between about 2/5 dark green and 3/5 scarlet red. Centered over the color boundary between green and red is a version of the national coat of arms. The coat of arms shows the Portuguese shield without laurel wreaths, on top of an a…rmillary sphere, wihch is a model of a celestial sphere. The armillary sphere is yellow outlined in black. The red shield has a white border. There are seven castles in the red area, with three at the top and two on each side of the shield. A smaller white shield is centered over the red area. Within the white shield are five smaller blue shields forming a cross with three across the middle and one each above and below the central blue shield. Within each blue shield are five white circles in three rows, with two in the first and third rows and one in the middle row. There has been much controversy over the meaning of the green and red colors. As an important astronomical and navigational instrument for Portuguese sailors, the armillary sphere refers to the Age of Discoveries. The Portuguese shield has been present in almost every historical flag, except during the reign of Afonso I [July 25, 1109-December 6, 1185]. The small blue shields are linked to the Miracle of Ourique in 1139, when the future Afonso I defeated five Moorish kings. The circles in each blue shield represent Christ's five wounds. The seven castles traditionally represent the capture of seven Moorish fortresses by Afonso III [May 5, 1210-February 16, 1279]. But the number is a popular belief without a firm basis. The flag was adopted as the official national flag on June 30, 1911. green red and a little bit of yellow around the shields green=hope red=the blood of the troops This one: http://www.flags.net/images/largeflags/PORT0001.GIF Seriously, you could have googled it.

Portugal is a country, so it doesn't eat anything, but the Portuguese people do eat. Portuguese people eat many different things, but you will find many fish dishes since it is a country very connected (culturally and physically) with the ocean. Actually some studies say that Portugal is the 3rd co…untry that most consume fish per capita in the world, being Iceland and Japan the top 2. Portugal also has a vast variety of meat dishes. Being the "chouriÃ§o", "linguiÃ§a" and "enchidos" in general one of the pride products of Portugal. Other thing that you might find different in Portugal is that Portuguese people love soup. Soup is a essential dish in Portugal, you will find it everywhere, there are some fast food chains that specialize in it and only sells soup dishes. Bread is also very important and you will find a huge variety of it everywhere. Portugal is a Mediterranean country facing the Atlantic ocean, so you will find that the country follows the usual Mediterranean cuisine. Olive oil, garlic, tomatoes and onions are the base of most dishes. (MORE)

Geography. Portugal is the westernmost country in mainland Europeand Lisbon is the westernmost European capital or major city(including the British Isles). Also there were important historicalfactors: Portugal's land boundaries have been stable longer thanany other country on Earth (essentially unch…anged for almost 800years), as such, it was not as preoccupied with securing its landborders as other nation-states even from the 13th century. PrinceHenry the Navigator established a school of navigation andexploration, continuing and enhancing the support of this endeavourwith the wealth and prestige of the royalty. There was a desire tobreak the control of Arab merchants (allied with Venice) over thevery lucrative spice trade with South and East Asia; in order to doso, this meant sailing around Africa, by-passing the EasternMediterranean region, and Portugal was in the best position toaccomplish this, which it did.
