At the official website (image here), the parochial emblem is a seal-like logo. The seal shows the local stone bridge and mineral spring fountain (canting for "les Escaldes," "the boiling [ones/waters]"), stylized, within a wreath of two different branches (laurel and wheat?) This on a white circular background and around it the lettering "Comú d'Escaldes-Engordany" above and "Andorra" below, separated by dots and set in black sans-serif capitals.
In spite of the official usage mentioned above, a simpler depiction of this logo, lacking the background and lettered rim, seems to be in use (Wikipedia image).
