Coat of arms

Shield Or, a branch of lily Vert blossomed Purpure, surrounded by four branches of hazel leaved Vert and fruited Gules, ordered 1:2:1. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll (Bénard Guedes style) with inscription in black capitals "AVELAL".
The commune's name is derived from "avelã", i.e. hazel nut. The arms are thus partially canting.
