    Coat of arms

    Shield Or, an eradicated pine tree Vert with seven pine cones Or; in chief a bar wavy Azure, charged with a barrulet wavy Argent Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "ALVITO DA BEIRA".
    Meaning:
    The pine tree is representing the local business lines, especially the predominant branch of forestry. The cones are representing the seven settlements forming the commune: Alvito da Beira, Sobrainho dos Gaios, Cerejeira, Vales, Dápera, Herdade e Mó. The bar wavy is representing the local riches of water, being the base of the fertility of the soil, among those especially the Ribeira do Alvito is of importance.
