Coat of arms

[Grijó (Macedo de Cavaleiros) commune CoA] image by Sérgio Horta, 29 Mar 2016

Shield Or, a saw Gules emphasized Sable per pale, in chief two bunches of grapes Purpure leaved Vert, issuant from base a mound of two coupeaux Vert. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "GRIJÓ - MACEDO DE CAVALEIROS".
The saw is likely to refer to the local barrelmaking tradition. The mound is standing for the mountain range Serra de Bornes. The symbolism of the other charges is trivial.
