Shield Azure, a labarum Argent charged with a throughout cross Gules and fixed on a golden pole topped by a cross, flanked by two fish respectant Argent, in base a grapevine Purpure leaved Argent. Mural crown Argent with three visible towers (village rank) and white scroll with inscription in black capitals "FREGUESIA DE SÃO JOÃO DA PESQUEIRA".
Meaning:
Labarum and fish are canting elements, because the commune's name means "St. John of the fishing grounds". Especially the labarum is an attribute of the patron saint St. John the Baptist.
