Coat of arms

[Souto (Penedono) commune CoA] image by Sérgio Horta, 22 Apr 2017

Shield Argent, a Papal cross Gules (blazon says: "cross with three arms"), surrounded by three eradicated chestnut trees Vert fruited Or ordered 2:1. Mural crown Argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll with inscription in upper case letters "SOUTO - PENEDONO".
"Souto" means "chestnut grove" - these arms are therefore partly canting. I have no idea about the cross.
