Coat of arms

Shield Or, two oaks Vert eradicated Sable ordered per fess, in chief a bladed wheel Gules, in base a millstone Azure. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials "REBOLOSA - SABUGAL".
The wheel is an attribute of St. Catherine, the local patron saint. The oaks are referring to the many oaks growing here in the past, The name "Rebolosa" is derived from "reboleiro", another word for "carvalho" (= oak). The millstone in Portuguese is also called "rebolo". Thus trees and millstone are canting.
