Coat of arms

Shield Vert, a castle Or, masoned Sable, with port and windows of the same and three embattled towers, in chief two anvils Argent ordered per fess. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "FERREIROS - PÓVOA DE LANHOSO".
The anvils are a tool, used by smiths (Port: ferreiros). They are thus punning.
