Coat of arms

Shield Argent with base wavy of Vert and Argent, castle Gules masoned Sable with port and windows Azure, in chief an orb Azure. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials "ANGRA - SÉ".
The orb is an attribute of Jesus Christ, being the local patron saint as the Divine Saviour. The base wavy is due to the green colour alluding to the Atlantic. The castle is taken from the former arms of Angra do Heroísmo municipality.
