Coat of arms

Shield Azure, semy of corn cobs Or, with base wavy of Argent and Azure, in centre a crescent recumbent Argent. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "GOVE".
The crescent is probably an attribute of St. Mary, the local patron saint.
