Brasão de Rebolosa

Official blazon

Escudo de ouro, dois carvalhos arrancados de verde, alinhados em faixa; em chefe, roda de navalhas de vermelho e, em contra-chefe, uma mó de azul. Coroa mural de prata de três torres. Listel branco com a legenda a negro, em maiúsculas : “ REBOLOSA - SABUGAL “.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on July 1, 1999.

The wheel is the symbol of St. Catherine, the local patron saint. The oak trees and the millstone (Rebolo) are canting elements for the village. There are many oaks in the area and they were used to make wheels (reboleiros).
