Arms of Albaladejo, Spain

Granted 1995

Blazon: Or a bend vert between in chief a castle triple-towered and in base a cross of Santiago gules

An investigation begun in 1995 found that the city of Albaladejo had not previously used its own arms. The city subsequently adopted the arms shown here, with the castle symbolizing the ancient Roman fortress, and the cross of Santiago the local parish of St. James the Apostle. Given that the bend was used to represent the ancient road that gave the city its name (from the Arabic “albalá”, or “road”), these may be considered canting arms.
