It's not a very important discover (cause will not give us new knowledge) but it's still remarkable.

Sorry for the late answer.
The King, is D. Afonso Henriques, the founder of Portugal, a great conqueror and a symbol of the early Portuguese identity.
The symbol is the Portuguese Shield, with 5 "Quinas" and 7 castles, it's an adaptation from the early blue cross, that evolved to this "modern" (15 century) form.

Good stuff JM, I will check it out... My family is originally from the Azores, Sao Miguel.
Azores (specially) São Miguel, is the origin from many immigrants there in America.
Making a quick research: just between 1961 and 1977, 150 thousand people immigrated to USA.
