Coat of arms

The arms are Argent a fountain Sable flanked by two grapevines Proper fruited Purpure. In chief a cross patty Gules voided Argent. Mural crown argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "SANTA MARIA DA DEVESA".
The cross belongs to the Christ Knights Order. The grapevines are symbolizing viticulture. The fountain probably is a local building.
