Coroa mural de prata de três torres. Listel branco com a legenda a negro, em maiúsculas : “ S. MAMEDE - BATALHA “.
The arms were officially granted on May 19, 1999.
The lion is a cymbol of the local patron saint, São Mamede (St. Mammes of Caesarea). The pine trees refer to the local (pine) forests and the wind-mill blades refer to the (former) windmills in the parish as well as industry.
