Introduction

(United) Commune of Mogadouro, Valverde, Vale de Porco, and Vilar de Rei is one of the four communes of Mogadouro Municipality [pt-mgd.html] created by the 2013 mergers and changes, when it was created anew by adding to the erstwhile Mogadouro Commune (which includes the urban perimeter of the municipal seat and namesake town) the three other named communes. As with all new communes named "União das Freguesias de " (instead of "Freguesia de ", even for compound names including several distinct toponyms), this merger is expected to be temporary, even if long-term. The new commune covers approx. 103.2 km² and as of 2011 the four former communes had a sum of 3887 inhabitants.

Coat of arms

[Mogadouro, Valverde, Vale de Porco e Vilar de Rei united  commune CoA] image by António Martins-Tuválkin, 4 May 2016

Shield Sable, a belfry Argent masoned and open and slit of the Field accompanied at the base and on the flanks by a two olive branches Or fruited Vert per saltire and in chief by two local Shrovetide masks Argent garnished Gules.

Meaning:
The tower is taken from the arms of former Mogadouro commune, the masks from those of former Vale de Porco, the olive branches from those of former valverde commune. Vilar de Rei is not represented in the new arms, probably never having had proper symbols.

Former Valverde commune (until 2013)

[Valverde (Mogadouro) commune (until 2013)] 2:3 image by Sérgio Horta,27 Feb 2016

It is a typical Portuguese communal flag, with the coat of arms centred on a field quartered of white and green. Please note that this is one of very few cases of communal flags seated on a village for which a quartered flag, not plain, was chosen. This is fully within the law (art.16 §5), but has not been CHAAP’s practice since they started creating communal symbols en masse in the late-mid 1990s.

Coat of arms

[Valverde (Mogadouro) commune CoA (- 2013)] image by Sérgio Horta, 27 Feb 2016

Shield Or a pigsty drinking fountain Sable and Argent between an olive branch Vert fruited Sable and an almond branch Vert flowered Argent, both per pale, issuant from base two mounds Vert. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "VALVERDE - MOGADOURO".
Meaning:
The word "valverde" is an apocope of "vale verde", "green valley", this meaning is shown in the arms by the two green hillocks; also featured are tokens for local pig farming, and for groves of olive and almond. However, the origin seems to be not necessarily soiled, as "fonte de chafurdo" (i.e., exactly what's mentioned in these arms) seems to be merely a fountain or well where users draw water with their own vessels (unlike a well fitted with its rope and bucket, I presume)

    Coat of arms

    Shield Argent, a pig passant Purpure, in chief two carnival masks Gules garnished Or and Sable ordered per fess, issuant from base a valley Vert. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials "VALE DE PORCO".
    Meaning:
    The name of the commune means "valley of the pig". Pig and valley are thus canting elements. The word for the masks (Port.: caretos) is derived from "careta" (=grimace).
