Origin/meaning

These arms have been officially granted on 20th January 1983.

Funny and surprising canting arms: the name Riumors reminds in Catalan "laughing dead men" ("riu", a form of the verb "riure", to laugh, and "morts", dead men, symbolised by the skulls). The two rivers at the base are the Muga and the Fluvià.
