The coat of arms is an white oval with a yellow border and a
landscape described in the first stanza of the municipal anthem,
written by Carlos Matínez Vargas: "A legendary pine raises
very high on the square in front of the temple".
The yellow border is inscribed with the black writing "MUNICIPIO DE SABOYA" (top) and "ESPERANZA Y PAZ" (Hope and Peace - bottom).
The landscape represented on the coat of arms could look from Savoy but the name of the municipality is not related to the Alps but the the local cacique (native chief) Saboyá.
