Coat of arms

Shield Argent, a bar wavy Azure, in chief an orbicular cross Gules, in base an amphora Purpure. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials "ÁGUAS BELAS - SABUGAL".
The cross is alluding to the Order of Templars. The amphora is an attribute of St. Mary Magdalen, the local patron saint.
