Coat of arms

[Gafanhoeira commune CoA (-2013)] image by Sérgio Horta, 10 Aug 2009

The arms are Purpure a rooster Or crested and barbed Gules and two cork oak twigs Argent acorned Argent capsuled Or, all set in chevron. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll "GAFANHOEIRA - SÃO PEDRO" reading in black upper case letters.
Meaning:
The word "gafanhoeira" can be interpreted to mean "leper colony" (from archaic "gafo", "leper") and thus the arms are not canting, depicting instead local produce and the animal-symbol of the patron saint (St. Peter) of the Catholic parish from which the commune was originally developed.

Flag and arms authored by Eduardo Lourenço Brito; adopted and published in the official journal Diário da República: III Série on 4 February 1999
