The arms are Vert divided by a bend wavy Argent charged with two bendlets wavy Azure, acorn cob Or in dexter base, a pine Or in sinister chief. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "RIBEIRA DE FRÁGUAS".
"ribeira de fráguas" means something like "cliff creek", so these arms are partly canting.
