The arms are Or a bunch of grapes Argent on its leaves Vert and cantoned by four fig leaves Vert set two and two. Mural crown argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll reading in black upper case letters "VILA DE FIGUEIRÓ DOS VINHOS".
"Figueiró" is a cognate of "_figueira_", "fig tree", and "dos vinhos" means "of the wines", which makes these arms completely canting.

This flag and coat arms were adopted and published in the official journal Diário do Governo : I Série in 1936.11.27.
