The Shield
Symbolize peace, readiness and bravery. While the people of Luna are peace loving, they are readyto defend themselves in case of aggression. The shield has five (5) branches or figures which show that Luna then consisted of two district areas. Bisected by Apayao Abulog river it consisted of the northwest side and the southeast side, represented by the two bottom fingers.
As years passed by, three municipalities were created out of the former

territory of Luna, namely, Pudtol, Flora and Sta. Marcela, each are represented by the three upper fingers, Flora and Sta. Marcela now occupies the former southeast side of Luna, while Pudtol and the mother town, Luna, are located at the northwest side of the river.

The Diamond
Being a precious metal, it represents the enormous natural wealth of Luna. The wide mountain so rich in minor and major products, minerals, wildlife, clear, fertile agricultural land and many others.
The Aliwa (native bolo)
The native bolo represents the first inhabitants of Luna, a minority group called Isnegs (or Itnegs) and Aetas (pugot or aggay) but in much lesser number than Isneg. Until Ilocano immigrants poured in, the Isneg dominated the whole municipality. The aliwa is sharp cutting instrument used chiefly by the Isneg at their residence or at the hillside farm. It is also used together with the spear for hunting and warfare. It is the status symbol of the Isnegs. Older folks or middle age Isneg always carry fasten at their waste an Aliwa anywhere they go, at peace or at war.
The Spear
The spear is a reflection of the way of living of the first inhabitants of Luna, The Isnegs and Aetas. The native are expert hunters. Their main source of livelihood was hunting. They depend chiefly on wild animals and wild birds for living. The spear is a very efficient instrument for hunting but is also use as effective weapon against enemy attack. Today, hunting becomes a sport of not only the natives but also the Ilocanos and other immigrants of the town.
The Mountain
The mountain symbolizes life stability. It is the main deposit of untapped natural wealth, major and minor forest products, minerals, wildlife and many others. It is the life blood of Luna and adjoining towns of Cagayan. It provides irrigation water at the ricefield of two Province, Apayao and Cagayan. The territory of Luna consists of wider mountainous and rolling area than lowland.
The Rice Paddies
Symbolize self-sufficiency of agricultural foods. The wide ricefield supply staple food of thousands if not million Filipinos. The straight and parallel earthen embankment of the paddies denotes that production is being mechanized to conform with present trend of modern agricultural know-how.
The Vacant Quadrant
(Where the logs are piled) denotes that wide forested agricultural land in the municipality awaits clearing and cultivation. Due to sparse population wide area are still alienable and disposable.
The mountain, verdant rice paddies and the vacant quadrant when viewed together represent the general topographic view of the municipality.
The logs
The 15 pieces of logs piled at the vacant quadrant represent the 15 barrios (now Barangay) and prominent sitios of Luna at the time of creation into municipal district. It included the barrios of former southeast district (now the municipalities of Flora, Sta. Marcela and Pudtol). Carrabao logging then was a secondary means of livelihood next to farming. Logs were gathered not at the mountain but right at their homestead while clearing. Hard wood whose stumps are still visible today, were abundant at now the fertile ricefield of Luna.
