Coat of arms

[Paradela (Mogadouro) commune CoA] image by Sérgio Horta, 4 Apr 2016

Shield Argent with base wavy of Azure and Argent, a well Azure flanked by an olive branch Vert fruited Sable at dexter and an oak branch Vert acorned Gules at sinister. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "PARADELA - MOGADOURO".
The word "paradela" is an hypochoristic of "parada", meaning both "halting place" and "parade ground" - I'm not sure which is meant, but neither seems to be depicted in the arms.
