Coat of arms

Shield Argent (realized as grey), all charges are black or lined black, in chief a church, in base two buildings divided by a housemark(?) black, in centre a broken chain black set in fess. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "VILAR DO PINHEIRO". The shield doesn't follow heraldic specifications and was probably never approved by the Comissão de Heráldica da Associação dos Arqueólogos Portugueses (CHAAP) .
