Coat of arms

[Lourinhã commune CoA (until 2013)] image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 26 Oct 2014,

Shield Gules, two branches of laurel Argent fruited Or, crossed per saltire and flanked by two fleur-de-lis Or, in central chief a scallop Or, all above a base wavy of argent and Vert. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "FREGUESIA DE LOURINHÃ".
Meaning:
Laurel trees are the most abundant native species of trees in the area and was already depicted on the oldest arms of the village. Their number is representing the two local communities, the indigenous one and the French one. The scallop is a symbol of the pilgrims of St. James, their passage through the village, and the saint's adoration, especially in the church of St. Mary of Lourinhã. The fleur-de-lis are taken from the arms of Dom Jordão, the first benefactor of Lourinhã. The waves (green and white) are representing the location on the shores of the Atlantic and its importance for the local development

The windmill wheels are symbolizing the replicas of windmills for touristic purposes and are a reminder on then numerous windmills of cereals in the past, nowadays replaced by a more industrial type of mill.
