In the 18th and early 19th centuries, national flags were flown on ships, fortresses and other public buildings. I believe the Portuguese national flag of this era was the white flag with the crowned national coat of arms, as shown on the historical flag page I linked earlier.

That is my assumption although one of the links appears to indicate red cloth backing rather than white.
