The Cock of Barcelos

The Rooster of Barcelos (Portuguese, “Galo de Barcelos”) is one of the most common emblems of Portugal. The legend of the Rooster of Barcelos tells the story of a dead rooster’s miraculous intervention in proving the innocence of a man who had been falsely accused and sentenced to death.

This card came as a surprise from Libania. 🙂
