The arms have on a Shield Azure, Azure three barrulets wavy Argent, in chief a St.Catherine's wheel Or bladed Argent, in base an eagle Or. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case serifed letters "AGUIEIRAS - MIRANDELA".
The word "Aguieiras" is related to "águia" (= eagle) and therefore the arms are partly canting.
