Coat of arms

Shield Argent, a keyhole Azure charged with nine barrulets wavy Argent, in chief a cross patty Gules, charged with a Greek cross Argent. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "FONTE COBERTA - BARCELOS".
Meaning:
The cross is alluding to the Order of the Knights of Christ. The keyhole can be also described as follows: a heraldic fountain emerging to base as an isosceles trinagle. The keyhole is canting, because the name of the commune means "covered fountain" or "protected fountain" or "hidden fountain". The water can be seen only through a keyhole.
