Coat of arms

Shield Argent, a cross fleury fitchy Gules (sword cross), in chief a fleur-de-lis Azure between two lynx heads Purpure, in base a goat passant Sable. Mural crown Argent with four visible towers (town rank) and white scroll with inscription in black initials "CABRELA".
The sword cross is alluding to the Order of Santiago. The fleur-de-lis is an attribute of Our Lady of Conception, the local patron saint. The goat is a canting element.
