N.B.: reconstructed image, no original seen
At the official website (image here), the parochial CoA is shown as a samnitic shield with thin red edging (not a heraldic bordure, or is it?), yellow scroll above reading "La Massana," and wreath of two branches with yellow leaves. The blazon is party per pale the I Or three pales wavy Azure and the II chequy Gules and Or.
An image at the official parochial website shows green leaves in the wreath, white scroll, and green (not yellow) background of the Ist of the shield, (at the official parochial website I found only a small depiction of this, embedded in a Flash animation; you can see also a logo used by the parish administration, orange with a white mountain outline doubling for an "M.")
The Ist partition of the shield is possibly taken from the arms of Andorra la Vella.
