Coat of arms

Shield Or with base wavy of Azure and Argent, a cogwheel Gules, surrounded by two branches of horseradish Vert, in base crossed per saltire, in chief a fessy weaver's shuttle Gules with filaments Argent. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials "POUSADA DE SARAMAGOS".
The name of the commune means "harbourage of horseradish". The horseradish (Port.: saramagos) is thus canting.
