|Heraldry of the World
Civic heraldry of the United States > Puerto Rico
The arms are divided by the cross of Christianity, and show in the first quarter the image of Our Lady of Mount Serrat, in the second a Taíno indian, symbolising the original population and the local caves, in the third a symbol for the rich agriculture and in the fourth symbols for music and local folklore. The round escutcheon shows the local spring that gave the town its name.
