Coat of arms

[Travanca (Mogadouro) commune CoA] image by Sérgio Horta, 2 Mar 2016

Shield Argent two bundles of wheat ears (actually only 3 ears in each "bundle") set in fess and in chief an open book Azure emphasized Or, issuant from the base a mound Sable (more craggy than usual) emphasized Or. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "TRAVANCA - MOGADOURO".
Meaning:
The village's name means "obstacle" in a somewhat archaic and hardly recognizable way (though evidently related to usual word "atravancad-o/-a", meaning "crowded" ref. to a room etc. where too many objects constitute an impediment to free movement); this meaning is absent from the arms.
