D’argent à une aigle de gueules, au vol abaissé, membrée, becquée et couronnée d’or, empiétant une montagne de trois coupeaux de sable issant d’une mer d’azur mouvant de la pointe et ondée d’argent.

(Bye-byes, rocks)
Traditional cradlesong from County of Nice.

Nona, bressa,
Lou pichoun devessa.
Lou pichoun vòu pas durmì,
Lou souon souon vòu pas venì.
Nona, bressa,
Lou pichoun devessa.
 Bye-byes, rocks,
The little child lies down.
The little child doesn’t want to sleep,
The sleep doesn’t want to come.
Bye-byes, rocks,
The little child lies down.

Variant, collected by the canon P. Belgrand
Nona, bressa,
Lou moulin de Vença,
La mamà de Casternóu
Pissa au liech e di que plóu...
Di que brunìa,
Si bagna la camiha.
Si bagna lou lançóu,
Di que plóu.
 Bye-byes, rocks,
The mill from Vence,
The mother from Châteauneuf
Wets her bed and says it’s raining...
She says it’s drizzling,
She wets her nightie.
She wets the sheet,
She says it’s raining.
