Civic heraldry of the United States > Puerto Rico
The cross in the first quarter is the cross of St. Michael, the patron saint of the town. The orb symbolises divine sovereignty and the lilies are the symbol of St. Anthony of Padua, the other local saint. The two bars are taken from the arms of the arms of the Guadiana family.
The orange tree in the fourth quarter is canting, as the name of the town means 'small orange tree'.
