Coat of arms

Shield Azure, a fess embattled on top and masoned Azure with port of the same, in chief a Paschal Lamb passant Or, in base an eagle Argent. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials: "BEJA - S. JOÃO BAPTISTA".
Meaning:
The Paschal Lamb, here bearing a red labarum with white cross, is an attribute of St. John the Baptist, the local patron saint. The eagle is alluding to Beja municipality. The embattled fess probably is symbolizing a local fortification.
