Shield Argent with base wavy of Azure and Argent, a kite Sable, garnished Or and armed Gules, in chief an orbicular cross Gules at dexter and a cross patty Gules charged with a Greek cross Argent at sinister. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "MINHOTÃES".
Meaning:
The commune's name is derived from "minhotão", an old word for "milhafre" (Engl.: kite). The kite is thus a canting element. The crosses are alluding to the Orders of the Templars and the Knights of Christ.
