Identity for the city of Albergaria-a-Velha.
Published:
The identity for the city of Albergaria-a-Velha evokes the stone set in the Hospital frontage following the Appeal of Lisbon judgment (1629), where the first record of Albergaria as a village linked to social and benevolence defense is located. It also recalls  the Couto d 'Osselôa letter (1155), the first document where Portugal appears with a kingdom status.
 
The lettering recreates the medieval epigraphic style of century. XII, where letters appear without large investment of linear organization; following this reconstitution, we used the distinguentes points, coeval at the time.
