The first coat of arms of Santiago was prescribed by Municipal Law No. 9 promulgated on 6 August 1969.

Article 1.
An English shield, quartered with a red border, surmounted by a four-towered mural crown argent. The shield is divided into four quarters, the 1st (on top, dexter) and the 4th (in base, sinister) featuring a half-naked Indian riding a red horse holding a lasso in the right hand about to throw it, in the background a green hill; the 2nd quarter (on top, sinister) featuring on a green field a white Charolais bull in base and a ram in chief; the 3rd quarter (in base, dexter) featuring on a yellow field black wheat plants. Beneath the shield a white scroll outlined in black inscribed "1884 / Santiago / 1938". `

Article 2.
The mural crown symbolizes municipal autonomy. The 1st and 4th quarters represent the region's missionary origin, the heroic war acts that illustrate the municipality's history, as well as the rural origin, agriculture and cattle-breeding still being the municipality's main source of income. The 2nd quarters features a bull and a ram, emphasizing the municipality's main source of income. The 3rd quarter represent the most relevant crop, wheat.
The green and yellow colors are those of the national flag, while green, yellow and red are those of the flag of Rio Grande do Sul. Yellow also represents wealth; green is the color of the fields and hope that pushes the struggle for socio-economic development; red is the color if blood, as a symbol of bravery expressed by the predecessors in the struggle for the border's fixation [...].
The scroll features year "1884" (Law No. 1,427 promulgated on 4 January 1884 elevated the "freguesia" of Santiago do Boqueirão to a "vila", including the 5th and 6th districts of São Borja). Sinister, year "1938" (Decree No. 1,799 issued on 3 March 1938, establishing the state's administrative and judiciary division, by which the municipality was formed of the districts, Santiago do Boqueirão, Caroví Flores, Costa do Itú, Ernesto Alves and Carneirinho, the municipality's seat being elevated to a "cidade" and the two districts of Flores and Ernesto Alves to a "vila"), and, in the center, "Santiago", the municipality's name.
