Coat of arms

The arms are Azure semy of wheat ears Or a couped representation of a Portuguese overseas land claim marker (Portuguese: "padrão" Argent. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "PADORNELO - PAREDES DE COURA".
"Padornelo" might be interpreted as an archaic diminutive of "padrão", but I don't have solid information on the reason for these arms.

Flag adopted and published in the official journal Diário da República: III Série on 30 November 2000
