Coat of arms

[Azinhoso commune CoA] image by Sérgio Horta, 1 Mar 2016

Shield Vert three holm oak leaves Argent per pale and set in fess,on chief a Marian crown Or gemmed Azure, base Argent wavy semy of wavelets Azure. Mural crown Argent with four visible towers and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "AZINHOSO".
The town's name resembles "azinho", the quintessential name for the holm oak or its acorn, and the three leaves on the arms refer to this - canting heraldry. The remaining charges have trivial meanings.
