Coat of arms

The arms are two fish Azure hooked and lined mouth-to-mouth naiant and counternaiant set in pale and eight fishhooks Gules in orle. Mural crown argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "S. JOÃO DA PESQUEIRA"
Meaning:
These arms are partly canting, for "pesqueira" means something like "fishing place".
António Martins-Tuválkin, 10 July 2007

Flag and coat of arms adopted and published in the official journal Diário do Governo : III Série in 1986.08.08, a remarkably late date.
