Coat of arms

Shield Argent; a fess Azure, charged with a wolf passant Argent, eyed, armed and tongued Gules; in chief two corn cobs Or leaved Vert ordered per fess, in base a grapevine Purpure leaved Vert. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "LAPA DO LOBO".
The commune's name means "the wolf's den", the wolf is thus a canting element.
