Coat of arms

Shield Or, a wood Vert, its base semy of blossoms Argent, in chief a dolmen Gules. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials: "ALDEIA DA MATA".
The commune's name means "village in the wood", the wood is thus a canting element.
