Portugal is divided in 18 Districts and two Autonomous Regions (Açores and Madeira). Each district is divided in municipalities. All municipalities (Concelhos) are further divided into parishes or sub-municipalities (Freguesias), except for the very small island of Corvo, Açores. There are 308 concelhos and 4260 freguesias.
For each municipality and sub-municipality the district/region is mentioned, and, when known, the municipality for the sub-municipalities.
The districts have no separate arms, but use the arms of the capital city. The two autonomous regions have their own arms:
