Introduction of Vila Chã de Braciosa

Like all toponyms in the municipality, this commune has two names: Vila Chã de Braciosa in Portuguese and Bila Chana de Barceosa in Mirandese (the local syncretic Asturian-Leonese dialect complex, co-official language of Portugal and given a standard orthography); each is the translation of the other and both mean «Plain town of »(untranslatable, apparently meaningless toponym). The names in brackets are Mirandese, the local language.

Shield Or, three grape leaves Vert emphasized Argent set in fess, in chief an orbicular cross Gules (Portuguese Templar cross), in base a bagpipe Gules. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "VILA CHÃ DE BRACIOSA". In spite of the bilingual status (enshrined in the Constitution of 1999), the scroll of the arms is not bilingual, according to the law (signed in 2007).
Meaning:
Featured on the arms are local vineyards, local folk music, and the Templar presence in the area of this Commune.
