ROMEIRA

Municipality : Santarém
District : Santarém

Official blazon

Escudo de prata, uma aspa solta de coticas de púrpura, acompanhada em chefe de uma cruz da Ordem dos Templários, de vermelho, nos flancos de dois ramos de três espigas de trigo verde, atadas de vermelho e em ponta de ramos de oliveira de verde, frutados de negro. Coroa mural de prata de três torres. Listel branco, com a legenda a negro em maiúsculas : “ ROMEIRA – SANTARÉM “.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on June 22, 1996.

The wavy cross and the olive branches show the importance of the olive groves for the parish. The cross symbolises the buzzing of the branches in the wind.

The wheat ear symbolises that wheat is the second most important crop in the parish. The cross is taken from an ancient decoration on the local church.
