The arms were granted on November 7, 1994.

The arms show the monastery of Sant Salvador, a magnificent treasure of Romanesque art, with its Lombard towers (from the 11th century). Below there are the arms of the viscounts of Cabrera, the landlords of the town; these arms are canting: they are derived from "cabra", Catalan for "goat".
