The arms are Argent a grill Azure set per pale and two oak branches Vert fruited Or all set in chevron. Mural crown argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "MATO - PONTE DE LIMA".
Meaning:
"Mato" means bush, which may be canting for the oak branches. Perennial, thorny bush named carrascal very often in Portugal consists of thorny shrub Kermes Oak (Latin: Quercus coccifera).
