Coat of arms

Shield Argent, a column's stub Azure flanked by two olive branches Vert fruited Sable, in central chief an orbicular cross Gules. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials "LOUSA - CASTELO BRANCO".
Meaning:
The name "Lousa" is derived from "Lousial", the name of a very old settlement, near by was a pre-Roman necropolis. According to other authors the reason was the abundance of local materials, such as slate (Port.: lousa), which was used to cover the roofs of houses and mortuary chambers, and sticks, which were used to catch birds. The column is alluding to local archaeological excavations, the cross to the Order of the Templars.
