Blazon : “Divided slightly degraded by the wavy cut of silver and blue. Above under a three-leaved green oak branch (with a black stem and black petioles) and enclosing this below the red section through a place surrounded by a ring of earth; below a silver bridge with brick-walled, lateral foundations, a concrete beam-supported roadway and a railing consisting of iron lattice elements supported by four stone supports. The roadway is additionally held by iron struts rounded at the bottom. "
