Algarve Municipal Coats of Arms, The Head of the Moorish king and the Christian king

In remembrance of the ancient kingdom status, most of the current municipal coats of arms (and also some parishes) of the Algarve have as main elements the head of the Moorish king and the Christian king who adorned the old (and putative) coat of arms Algarve kingdom. Alongside the representation of goshawk in coats of the Azores and a star in the municipalities of Serra da Estrela, this is one of the few natural areas of the country that makes use of a distinctive heraldic symbol, to which only the cities of Faro, Lagos and Olhão leak.
