Heraldic elucidation.

Shield: Known as Iberian, with the point formed by a semi-circle, in use in Portugal, namely at the time of Brazil's discovery and colonization. According to our heraldists, this is the best emblem for Brazilian towns. In Brazilian heraldry, it evokes the origin of the race to which Portuguese contributed as the main element.
Mural crown: With four towers, this is the proper and consecrated emblem of municipalities and of their administrative autonomy.
Motto: "Jaguaruna" on a yellow scroll.
Date: "20.12.1930", as the date of political emancipation of the municipality.
Cassava and rice plants: Represent the municipality's main crops.
Two stylized black jaguar's heads: A tribute to the municipality's name, which means "Black jaguar" in Tupi-Guarani.
Two stylized tridents crossed over a stylized net and a white background: Represent one of the municipality's sources of income, fishing. The trident is the scepter of Neptune, King of the Sea.
Stylized sun over stylize waves: Represents the beaches located in the municipality, which will be in the future a source of income.
