Origin/meaning

The arms were granted during the decade of the seventies. The red band that crosses the shield diagonally represents the name of the municipality and symbolizes the patriotic love of the population and its daily struggle, as well as the martyrdom of San Juan Nepomuceno, one of the patron saints of the municipality.

Over the red band it has a gold "cidra" and a cornucopia with its fruit in natural colour, which alludes that Cidra is a mayor producer of fruit. In the superior right is placed a scapulary that evokes the Virgin Carmen, patron saint of the town, and a black bishop hat that alludes to San Juan Nepomuceno, bishop and martyr.

In the left inferior part, on a blue bottom, is located a brown Savannah Dove which nests in the Cidra area. This dove flies over a mountain of three tips, which indicates the location of the municipality in the Central Mountain Range.

The blue and silver waves symbolize the aquatic wealth of Cidra.

All this is capped by a three-tower crown because is a town. In the banner is written Cidra de Eterna Primavera (Cidra eternal spring).
