Escudo de prata, ponte de três arcos de púrpura, lavrada de prata, e movente dos flancos e de um pé ondeado de azul e prata; em chefe, um feixe de sete flechas de verde, atadas de vermelho, à dextra e um sino de vermelho, badalado de azul, à sinistra.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on August 22, 1997.

The seven arrows are the symbol of St. Sebastian, patron saint of the parish. The bell symbolises the local church bells, which were, rather unusual, cast in the village itself. The purple bridge symbolizes the name of the village, as Ponte means bridge. The waves represent the Liz river that runs through the village.
