Coat of arms

Shield Or, an eagle Sable, in chief a chalice Purpure at dexter and a raven Sable at sinister. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "LAMA - BARCELOS".
Chalice and raven are symbolizing the great influence of the Benedictine Order and its covent of Tibães. The eagle is taken from the arms of the Azevedos kin.
