Arms of Caserta, Italy

Caserta

In use since at least 2009

Blazon: Azure two cornucopias in saltire ensigned by a crown or, the dexter filled with wheat and the sinister with fruit all proper

While I cannot find any specific rationale behind these arms, it’s highly plausible that the dual cornucopia is a reference to the remarkable fertility of the region; it was part of the area called “Campania felix” in the Roman era, or “fertile countryside.”
