Escudo de Les Avellanes i Santa Linya

Official blazon

Escut caironat truncat: 1r. d'argent, una avellaner de sinople; 2n. de sinople, una creu grega bordonada d'argent. Per timbre una corona mural de poble.


The arms were granted on December 24, 1999.

The arms are canting: "les avellanes" in Catalan mean literally "the hazelnuts", and they contain in fact a fruited hazelnut tree. In 1970 the village of Santa Linya (symbolized here by a round-ended cross) joined this municipality.
