Coat of arms

[Castro Verde municipality CoA] image by Sérgio Horta, 14 Nov 2007

The arms are Argent a castle Vert with port and windows Gules above a pick Sable per pale on two wheat ears Or set per saltire and under five escutcheons Azure per cross with the lateral ones pointing to the center and each charged with five plates (quinas cross) in the dexter chief and a Saint James cross Gules in the sinister chief. Mural crown Argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "MUNICÍPIO DE CASTRO VERDE".
Meaning:
"Castro verde" means "green castle" (or rather, "castrum") and the castle is thus a canting element.
