Coat of arms

Shield Argent with base wavy of Azure and Argent, crowned by a 3-arched bridge Sable, above a windmill's wheel Sable rigged Vert at dexter and a bladed wheel Gules at sinister, in central chief a rounded cross patty Gules. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials: "SABACHEIRA".
The bladed wheel usually is an attribute of St. Catherine, but the local patron saint is Our Lady of Immaculate Conception. The cross is alluding to the Order of the Templars.
