Escudo de prata, com sete faixas ondadas de verde e três golfinhos de negro, realçados de ouro. Coroa mural de cinco torres de prata. Listel branco com a legenda de negro : " CIDADE DE MATOSINHOS ".

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on November 7, 1966 and again on March 22, 1986. The only difference is the crown and the name of the town on the banner (see previous arms below).
