The symbols are described as follows:

The second quarter shows the arms of the House and State of Zúñiga, recalling that the Counts of Miranda del Castañar (a branch of Zúñiga) were once lords of Las Casas del Conde [lit., The Count's Houses].

The House of Zúñiga, one of the oldest Spanish noble lineages, descends from the Kings of Navarre.
