Blazon: Gules on a bend argent a passion cross of the first

I don’t think it’s unreasonable to speculate that the passion cross may be derived from the town’s long history with the local Pauline monastery. It was founded as an hermitage in 1342, converted to a monastery in 1358, and seems to have been a significant influence on local politics until its dissolution in 1786. The building was demolished in the 19th century, but the site is still marked by – yep, you guessed it, a cross.
