Coat of arms

Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials "ANGRA - S. PEDRO".
The base wavy is due to the green colour alluding to the Atlantic. The crossed keys are an attribute of St. Peter, name giver and local patron saint of the commune. The anchor is symbolizing shipping or fishing.
