The good citizens of Mochumi are obviously very fond of Argentina.

This original (official?) image has really bad symmetry and wrong fill details; that’s especially visible on the off-center sun crest.

As pointed out Juan Jose Morales on our page, this emblem seems to be influenced by Argentine heraldic design, both in the overall use of the oval shield and in the specifics of the handshake and the Phrygian cap.
See Mendoza Province, San Juan Province, and many others.

The coat of arms was apparently created during the tenure from 1993 to 1995 of C.P.C. Segundo Chapóńán Valiente as mayor through a contest.
