Coat of arms

[Odemira municipality CoA] image by Sérgio Horta, 24 Feb 2000

The coat of arms is sable, on a fess argent two trees proper, in chief a tower argent with purple windows, between two bundles of wheat, of three ears each, or tied purple, in base on a wavy fess azure fimbriated argent, tree fish of the same naiant dexter. Mural crown argent with four visible towers (town rank), and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "VILA DE ODEMIRA".
Meaning:
The arms are partly canting as they show a river and the syllable "Ode" in this toponym (as in many others in Portugal) comes from arabic "wad", "river" (in Spain it originated current "Guad" forms): Mira river crosses the town and actually drains most of the municipal territory.
