Municat, l'escut de la Segarra

Català: Escut de Segarra: Escut caironat: de sinople,
una espiga d'ordi d'or esfullada en pal amb tants grans com municipis tingui la comarca; la bordura componada d'or i de gules.
Per timbre una corona mural de comarca.

Castellano: Escudo de Segarra: Escudo losanjado: de sinople,
una espiga de cebada de oro hojeada en palo con tantos granos como municipios tenga la comarca; bordura componada de oro y gules.
Por timbre, corona mural de comarca.
Segarra. During mid IX century, the bizarre Biscayans defended their mountains heroically against attacks by the Sarracenos, By majority election the Biscayans selected a powerful and brave knight called Fortun Lopez, as their leader, considered as the first lord of Biscay.
A descendant of Zuria named Juan Zuriena, captain of 100 men, invented an instrument when their ammunition was exhausted in an uphill battle by King Garcia-Iñigüez de Aragon, against infidels which took place on the banks of a river. The weapon, similar to a crossbow, used by the soldiers to hurl pebbles extremely accurately, baffled the enemy, pushing them to shameful flight. In memory of this event, Zuriena took the name of Segarra, a word that means pebble; this was the original foundation of this lineage, which is widespread in most of Spain.
