Shield Vert, in base a stag passant Or armed Gules, in chief two bells Or fixed Gules and set in fess. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials: "FREGUESIA DE MAFRA".
The green colour and the stag are alluding to the nature-sanctuary of Tapada de Mafra. The bells are alluding to the local monastery.
