  The round rope depicts the common aspiration of the Cabadbaranons for progress and prosperity.           The blue color background of the words "City of Cabadbaran" and "Official Seal" symbolizes the hardworking and persevering Cabadbaranons while the white color characterizes the purity of their intention as a people.           The two(2) white stars in between the words "City of Cabadbaran" and "Official Seal" embody the two traits common in many Cabadbaranons: hospitable and peace-loving.           The red stars signify the vigor and enthusiasm of the inhabitants of the thirty-one (31) Barangays of the City in their quest for a better life.           The green map of Cabadbaran at the center is traversed by a river in blue strip which reveals the abundant potable water supply in the City and the class "A" aggregates produced by the Cabadbaran River.           The green fields portray the City's booming agriculture which is the backbone of its economy and the upper dark green area depicts its rich mineral resources and protected watershed.           The figure "2007" is the year the Municipality of Cabadbaran converted into a Component City of Agusan del Norte by virtue of Republic Act 9434 which was ratified by the people through a plebiscite on July 28, 2007.
