The coat of arms features the following local attributes:
- a cacique's crown
- agricultural products (sugar cane and rice)
- a pickaxe
- a 'canje' pheasant
The traditional featherhead crown is also present on the President's standard. The national flower (Victoria regia lily) is also present on this flag.
The arms were granted in 1966, the President's standard in 1970.
