Coat of arms

The coat of arms is gules, a castle or masoned sable, door and windows void, under a roman cross patty argent voided gules, this flanked by two 6-point stars under which, sinister, an ineschuteon charged with Portugal ancient, dexter a crescent argent. Mural crown argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "NOTÁVEL VILA DE NISA". (see left image above)

The unusual epithet "notável" ("noteworthy") was attributed for successful borderline defence, if I recall correctly.
