Administrative division

Portugal is divided in 18 Districts and two Autonomous Regions (Açores and Madeira). Each district is divided in municipalities. All municipalities (Concelhos) are further divided into parishes or sub-municipalities (Freguesias), except for the very small island of Corvo, Açores. There are 308 concelhos and 4260 freguesias.

Civic Heraldry

The districts have no separate arms, but use the arms of the capital city. The two autonomous regions have their own arms:

Coats of arms of Municipalities and Freguesias

All municipalities and over 90% of the parishes have arms.
For each municipality and parish (freguesia) the district/region is mentioned, and the municipality for the parishes.
