Or, a Roundel Argent bordered Gules, in base triple steep Mountain Peaks Vert.

Muriaux used first the coat-of-arms of the nobility of Murival (later Muriaux) but Saignelégier chief town of Franches-Montagnes district adopted the same coat-of-arms. In order not to mix both civic coats of arms, Muriaux added three rocks "les tras Reutches de Muriâ" (which means in local dialect "the three rocks of Muriaux").  The French blazon speaks about a mirror (miroir) to describe what Željko presented as a roundel.
