The arms were officially granted on July 25, 2000.

The golden scallop is the symbol of the local patron saint, St. James the Elder.

The two wolves are a based on a legend of the name of the village. The name is derived from 'trembling' and it is said that wolves once ravaged the area and that the local villagers trembled with fear.

The wheat ears symbolise that wheat is the main crop in the parish.
