Arms of Agudo, Spain

Agudo

Granted 1984

Blazon: Per pale argent a cross of Calatrava gules and azure three oars palewise in fess, between six crescents fesswise in chief and in base argent; pointé in base vert a base barry wavy of four argent and azure

The crescents are likely a remainder of the area’s time under Arab rule; during the eleventh through thirteenth centuries, the area seems to have changed hands fairly frequently. The Order of Calatrava held the town from 1189 – 1195 and after 1269.
