The coat of arms meaning: Inside is the scene from our coastal scenery composed of the Orinoco River, on the left a janoko (house built on stilts) where our local Warao Indians live. On the right is the Ojidu (Moriche palm tree), very abundant on this island. The two macaw birds are also in abundance in the island, the sun-down at the end of the Orinoco River and the entrance to the Atlantic Ocean. The coat of arms was designed by Peter Ponce and painted by Mr Paez Rodriguez, inhabitant of Cangrejo Island.
