Coat of arms

[Quinta do Anjo commune CoA] image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 26 May 2015

Shield Or, an angle statant, dressed and winged Azure, holding a flamy sword Argent hilted Gules with his right hand and an oval shield Argent with his left arm. He is flanked by two sword crosses Gules in chief, in base a ceramic bowl Gules with ornaments Sable. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials: "QUINTA DO ANJO - PALMELA".
Meaning:
The angel (cherub), probably St. Michael due to the flamy sword, is a canting element, because the commune's name means "the angel's manor (or farm)". The bowl is referring to a nearby necropolis, where many archaeological excavations have been made. (look here)
