Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on November 12, 1994.

The arms show the local water tower (locally known as the stove), built in 1929 and a symbol for the parish.

The grapes and wheat ears refer to the (former) importance of agriculture and the rich soil in the parish. The blue field symbolises the local patron saint, Our Lady of Penha de França.
