Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black initials: "SÃO GREGÓRIO - ARRAIOLOS".
Meaning:
Oak and wheat had been the main sources of agricultural abundance. Sunflowers are very common in the local fields. The dove is a somehow canting element, usually symbolizing the Holy Spirit, here it is an attribute of St. Gregor, the local patron saint. Draft designed by Eduardo Lourenço Brito.
