Parted Coat of Arms

The shield is parted per pale. The sinister half is a modification of the arms described above. On a field Azure (light blue with a sting of turquoise), completely charged with a fishnet Sable, issuant from partition line a demi-anchor Maron roped Argent. The dexter half displays on a field Vert (light blueish green) a "meda de Sargassum" Maron, a basket and two rakes of the same, in chief a radiant sun Or. Mural crown Argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "VILA DE A VER-O-MAR". (see right image above)
Meaning:
"Medas de Sargassum" are found throughout the beaches of the commune and consist of sun-dried piles of seaweed intended for natural farming fertilization. The anchor is probably alluding to the fishing-farmers of the town.

Presentation of A Ver-o-Mar

A Ver-o-Mar Commune was one of the pre-2013 communes of Póvoa do Varzim Municipality; it had 8675 inhabitants in 2011 and covered 5.2 km². A Ver-o-Mar was once a fishing-farmer village in the north of the city of Póvoa de Varzim, "Abonemar" is the oldest name of A Ver-o-Mar and dates from 1099. In ecclesiastical terms, it was part of the parish of Amorim, although in the 17th century it was annexed to the town of Póvoa de Varzim due to a growing community of fishing-farmers and the increasing importance of Póvoa de Varzim. It became an independent commune from Amorim on 10 August 1922. In late 20th century, the commune became urbanized as a consequence of north expansion of Bairro Norte of the city of Póvoa de Varzim. Despite being included in the urban area of the city of Póvoa de Varzim since the 1995 city limits expansion, the commune gained town status on 1 July 2003. In January 2006, the national government approved and recognized the extension of the city of Póvoa de Varzim to this and three other parishes.

The simple coat of arms is based on an assessment of Comissão de Heráldica da Associação dos Arqueólogos Portugueses (CHAAP), edited on 17 April 2012, which is strange, as the commune had been upgraded to a town already in 2003. The draft then should have four visible towers instead. The parted coat of arms has no chance of being approved, as parted shields are forbidden by law.
