Councillor for infrastructure Juan Ignacio López-Bas noted that it is painted on tiles and is ‘one of the most beloved symbols of the city’.
He explained that it had been damaged earlier this year and was repainted with a new design a few months ago.
According to the councillor, the Segura river and water authority (CHS) had been informed at the time and the council had asked them to be careful during the mud removal project.
However, workers still managed to spoil the new coat of arms.
The councillor noted that the CHS would be asked to pay for the damage.
