Arms (crest) of Jamaica (parish)

Official blazon

En campo de plata una banda de gules como pieza honorable, cargada de un panqué de oro en su centro o abismo del escudo y entre dos losanges de oro. Le acompañan dos montes de sinople, a cada lado.


The bend refers to the Cuban Central Road that runs through the parish. The road was initially built in the early 19th century, paved in 1852, and is one of the principal roads in the country. The road was of strategic importance during the War of Independence of Cuba and the red colour refers to the battels to control the road.

The two green hills are the Camoa and Somorrostro hills on the entrance to the valley of San Jose de las Lajas. They also refer to the stone quarries in the parish.

The image in the centre refers to the famous local Jamaica pancakes, the diamonds to the tile and bathroom fixtures factories in the parish.
