Arms of Horcajo de los Montes, Spain

Horcajo de los Montes

Granted 2004

Blazon: Argent on a fess gules between a vulture displayed sable and an olive branch fructed vert a molet of six points of the field

The name of the town derives from “horcajo” or “fork,” referring to its position at the joining of two streams. Records of the town date back to the fourteenth century. While olive cultivation is common in the region, I’m afraid I don’t have an explanation for the molet – or the vulture.
