Shield Or, an eradicated holly oak Vert fruited Gules, flanked by two post horns Gules cordoned Vert facing inwards, in chief a bagpipe Sable, piped Gules with its tassels Gules and Azure, on base wavy Azure a barrulet wavy Argent. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "UNIÃO DAS FREGUESIAS DE SÃO JULIÃO DE PALÁCIOS E DEILÃO".
Meaning:
The pipes are probably representing Deilão in the new arms, and the heraldic fountain of São Julião de Palácios disappeared and might have been replaced by the base wavy.
