Escudo (armas) de Tacuarembó (departamento)

Official blazon


The background shows the Batoví mountain. The diagonal lines are bamboos, which form part of the name of the department in Guarani language (tacuara means bamboo). The sheep and the steer symbolise the major produce of the department, which is mostly grassland prairies. The hydroelectric turbines in the bottom right corner indicate that Tacuarembo borders one of the 3 large hydroelectric dams which produce all the electrical energy necessary for the country. The triangular looking shape in the middle of the shield, behind the flame, is the outline of the department. The sun and the blue sky above the name of the department are taken from the national arms and flag.
