Arms of Picón, Spain

Picon

Granted 1963

Blazon: Per fess argent a cross of Calatrava gules and or a double-headed eagle displayed and crowned sable

The arms in the base half of the shield are those of the Estrada family, who once controlled the region. Emperor Frederick of Germany granted these arms in 1188 to Gonzalo Fernández de Estrada, which probably explains their similarity to the German national arms.
