Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black initials: "FREGUESIA DE REGUENGOS DE MONSARAZ".
The name of the commune means: "royal domains of Monsaraz". The cross with acorns is the usual attribute of St. Anthony (Portuguese: Santo António), the local Patron saint. The rhomb might be the shield of a female.
