Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, an eradicated pear tree Argent, fruited Or, in chief a knot of St. Francis (the cord was also used as a belt by the Franciscan Friars). Mural crown with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "PEREIRA - BARCELOS"
Meaning:
The pear tree (Port.: pereira) is a canting element. The knot is referring to the Franciscan Friars, who established the monastery Bom Jesus da Franqueira in Pereira in 1567. The monks were well known for the production of shoes, especially sabots, and textiles.
