The arms are Azure a bare forearm Proper in fess, in chief a marian crown Or gemmed Gules, in base a mattock's blade Argent. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "MANIGOTO".
The arms maybe partly canting as the word stem "man-" (archaic and/or etymologic for "mão", "hand") is present in the toponym.
