Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials "CERDEIRA - SABUGAL".
The cherry pairs are canting elements. "Cerdeira" is the local northeastern mainland Portuguese alternative to the more usual "cerejeira", meaning "cherry tree". (cerdeira = cherry orchard??) The base wavy is representing Noémi River, finally the bridge is crossing that river.
