For the creation of the municipal coat of arms we decided to combine some elements of the traditional emblem, renewing and combining them. We add new elements that represent more significantly the current situation of the department and the profile of its neighbors.
The elements and concepts that we combined were: the condor, brotherhood, sustainability, culture, landscape, laurels, the flag and identification.
Previous coat of arms of the municipality of Godoy Cruz, emblem presented in society in 1994.
The figure of the Condor was maintained, which identifies the Andean populations as few. Now it appears in mid-flight, connoting splendor and grandeur.
We also hold hands intertwined that reflect the brotherhood between neighbors, as well as with tourists.
From this brotherhood grows a sprout, which sums up the importance of ecology and sustainability.
The base is an open book, referring to the arts and culture that flood the streets of Godoy Cruz.
In the background we find the sun, the mountains and the worked fields, elements that allude to Mendoza.
The whole set is contained by a laurel wreath that symbolizes the greatness and achievements of the department.
The lower arch of the shield is surrounded by the name of the department, which allows it to be used in isolation and to maintain identification.
The shield is located on a light blue and white background, in reference to the national emblem.
