Coat of Arms


by Nelson Román, 15 July 2004

In a silver field, resides an inverted "V"-shaped green band. Contained in the band are five gold huts. To either side and below the band are a total of three Maricao (Byrsonima spicata) tree branches with flowers. Surrounding the shield below and to either side are two coffee tree branches. Above it is placed a gold mural crown with three towers outlined in black with green doors and windows. The Indian settlements are represented by their characteristic houses, huts that until just a few years ago also constituted the homes of many Puerto Rican farmers. The outer ornaments of the shield are neither specific nor exclusive of Maricao. The coffee tree branches refer to the coffee zone of the area, where the municipality is located. The crown is a heraldic emblem standard for cities, villas and towns that are used as an emblem for to distinguish municipal coat of arms from royal, state, Episcopal and family shields.
