About the Flag

I couldn't find any flag information.

Coat of arms

Shield Argent, a roof tile Gules, surrounded by a wreath of fool's water cress Vert blossomed Or and crossed per saltire in base. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "RABAÇAL - MEDA".
"Rabaçal" is derived from "rabaça", which is probably fool's water cress (but also rapeseed or the leaves of horseradish (Port.: rábano)). The wreath then would be canting.
