The commune probably has no proper symbols, just an empty shield with inscription and mural crown with three visible towers is displayed in this webpage

Coat of arms

[Vilarinho do Monte commune (until 2013)] image by Sérgio Horta, 26 Mar 2016

Shield Or, on a mound Vert a pig Argent emphasized Sable and eyed Gules, atop the mound an embattled Roman fortress (lit.: a castrum-like building) Gules masoned Argent. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "VILARINHO DO MONTE".
Meaning:
"Vilarinho" means something like "small settlement" and "monte" means "hill", which makes the arms partly canting. However the whole toponym is a miniaturisation for a nearby village and commune seat, Vilar do Monte, to which it was named (one of many such cases in Portugal). I have no specific info about any additional symbolism for the pig and the fortress, apart from the obvious.
