Coat of arms

Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "CALVARIA DE CIMA".
The sword is reminding on the battle of nearby Aljubarrota. The tree is symbolizing economic activities such as limber mills and furniture factories and the exploitation of tree gum. The jar is representing pottery, the cogwheel industries.
