Coat of arms

[Vila Seca (Armamar) commune CoA (until 2013)] image by Sérgio Horta, 10 Apr 2010

The arms are Vert four milestones Argent set in lozenge upon base wavy Argent a barrulet Azure. Mural crown Argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "VILA SECA - ARMAMAR".
"Vila Seca" means "dry town" and this is inverse canting - an extreme case of mindless adding of a meaningless wavy base to each and every communal arms, regardless of how rivers or streams are locally significant.
António Martins-Tuválkin, 10 Apr 2010

Flag and arms adopted and published in the official journal Diário da República: III Série on 19 December 2000
