Coat of arms

[Antas commune CoA (until 2013)] 2:3 image by Sérgio Horta, 13 Apr 2017

Shield Or, an eradicated chestnut tree Vert with burs Argent between two dolmens Gules garnished Argent. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "ANTAS - PENEDONO".
Meaning:
The arms are canting, as "antas" means (in this context) "dolmens"; the tree stands for local importance of chestnut growing and also for one particular large tree (castanheiro de Santa Comba).
