Coat of arms

[ municipality CoA] image by Sérgio Horta, 21 Sep 2007

Shield Sable on a ground Vert charged with a fess wavy Azure fimbriated Argent two salt pyramids Argent set in fess, on chief watermill's wheel Argent. Mural crown Argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "CIDADE DE RIO MAIOR"
Meaning:
The salt pyramids stand for the local unique salt mines — an underground filon of fossil seaborne halite which is drained by a river (also shown on the arms, as usual, and refered in the town’s name — canting arms) and deposited in a small alluvial plain, the salt being thus twice dissolved.
António Martins-Tuválkinand André Serranho, 6 Apr 2007 / 21 Sep 2007
