Surrounding a pale Gules two intertwined grapevines Vert with leaf and bunch of grapes both, in base flanked by two stone axes Sable.
The grapevine is symbolising the local viticulture since the Medieval. The axes were found in 1953 and 1954. They are symbolising the early peopling since the times of the Neolithic age.
