The brown border of the shield means that the founders of the village lived from agriculture. The fish represent today's main resource, the sea appears as the supplier of the resource, the fishing net means that the village mostly lives from fishing, and the net meshes mean that two communities were merged in to a single village. The sun appears as required to fertilize the soil. The Latin motto "OMNIA E PROVIDENCIA" means "Everything Comes From Providence".
