Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on August 14, 1992.

The arms symbolise the historical Arabic name of the area, Al Balade, meaning walled fields. The arms thus show a green field surrounded by olive groves outside the wall.

The sword refer to the battle of Alvalade in 1323 between King Dinis and his son Prince Alfonso (later King Alfonso IV).
