The coat of arms of Torrevieja shows the symbols of the coast. On the sea, there is a sailboat that exports salt from the saltworks. The two little houses and the gorge at the bottom of the emblem represent the early Torrevieja, while seagulls fly on the sky. The half-ruined watchtower is in the middle of the shield and reminds us of the devastating earthquake that shook Torrevieja in 1829.
There is also a rhombus above the coat of arms with red and yellow stripes, which is a symbol of the former empire of Aragón. The emblem is crowned with the symbolic crown.
