In a silver(=white) shield is a red embattled wall topped by three towers with triangular roofs. Between the towers are two golden(=yellow) Latin crosses stuck upon red poles. In the open gate is St.James dressed blue. In one hand he holds a red model of a church, in the other hand a golden(=yellow) stick with a bottle of the same colour.
According to source the arms show the image of a 14th century seal. The unknown colours had been chosen arbitrarily.
