Introduction of Misericórdia

Misericórdia Commune was established in 2012 by merging of the former communes of Encarnação,Mercês, Santa Catarina and São Paulo. The new commune don't seem to have a proper logo. On its webpage instead the four coats of arms of its former communes are displayed.

Coat of Arms

[ commune (Lisboa) CoA (until 2012)] image by Sérgio Horta, 1 Dec 2014

hield Argent, two trumpets Sable lined Argent and crossed per saltire, upon the honour point a golden book superimposed by five inescutcheons Azure, set in cross, each one bearing five plates, the whole enveloped by two laurel branches Vert fruited Or, in base a conch Purpure. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "ENCARNAÇÃO - LISBOA".
Meaning:
The trumpets represent a local newspaper. Book, quinas and laurel are alluding to Luís de Camões and to "Os Lusíadas", the golden book of "lusitanity". The conch is representing the melody of the sea, perhaps the root of Fado. The purple colour is representing science, respect and concentration (literally: interior collection).
