The arm show an Agnus Dei, probably the oldest arms/symbol of the city as can be seen on the seal of 1303 (see below). The cross is the cross of the Occitanie region and is taken from the arms of the Count of Toulouse. The counts startred the use of the cross in the 12th or 13th century.

The two buildings, the local castle and cathedral, indicate the strength of the city. The chief is the chief of France and probably was added after King Philippe III inherited the County of Toulouse in 1272.

During Napoleonic times, the chief was replaced by a chief with three bees.
