Coat of Arms

Shield divided per pale; on the right side, in a golden (yellow) field, the Cross of St. Jakob. Under its sharp point are two crossed flags, the right one a purple flag of Castille (if the image would be bigger, you could see the coat of arms of Castille and Leon in its centre) stuck on a lance; the left one a green Guanche flag (añepa) made of green palm fibres. On the left side in a red field are three towers with pinnacles in a triangular formation with a key topping the lower castle. The key is connected with chains to both upper castles. All of those parts are golden (yellow). The shield is topped by a coronet.

The right half is the old shield of the municipality of Realejo Alto, the left one that of Realejo Bajo. When both municipalities merged, also the shields were connected. The current shield was licensed by the Spanish government on 6 March 1959.

  • The right half is the coat of arms of former municipality of Realejo Alto: flags and lances symbolize the treaty of peace, signed here on the day of St. Jacob, symbolized by the cross above.
  • The left half is the coat of arms of former Realejo Bajo: the towers are supposed to be fortresses, having existed in this territory, but no one knows exactly.
The coat of arms was established by the Spanish government on 6 March 1959, published in BOE (Boletin Oficiál de España) on 14 February 1959.
