Local symbolism

Algarvan heads and azorean goshawk are the only distinctive regional charges in our municipal heraldry (plus the star in the municipalities of the Estrela Range region, though in a much lesser degree).
Jorge Candeias, 24 Jul 2001

There are more stars standing for Serra da Estrela (Star Mountains) in local portuguese heraldry than in the three municipalities comprising the eponymous sub-region.
António Martins, 04 Apr 2007
