Coat of arms

Shield Azure with base wavy of Argent and Azure, surmounted by a pale Argent (however realized as light blue), charged with St. Pelagius of Cordoba (Port.: São Paio) over an unrecognisable charge in base, at dexter a haystack and a potter's wheel, at sinister two millstones and a coronet, all Argent. Mural crown Argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "VILA DE S. PAIO DE OLEIROS".
Please note: The pale Argent within source is realized as light blue. There is another coat of arms within the hyperglobal-pages, the pale being realized as white, the charges of the blue fields different in shape, and finally São Paio issuant from an image of the fortress of Feira, based on a red rock.
