Coat of arms

Shield Argent, issuant from base a triplemount Vert charged with three lozenges Or ordered 1:2, in chief two windmill's wheels Sable rigged Azure. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "SERRO VENTOSO".
The lozenges are representing stonecutters, especially the production of marble. The triplemount is representing the local geography and a punning element, because the name of the commune means something like "draughty, or stormy, ridges". The millstones are referring to the local production of cereals.
