Arms of Tarazona de la Mancha, Spain

Tarazona

Granted 1987

Blazon: Vert a castle triple-towered or windowed gules between two lions rampant combatant of the second, langued of the third, in chief a double-headed eagle displayed and in base a lamb passant argent

The motifs of the castle and the lions are extremely popular in Spanish municipal arms as a reference to the twin kingdoms of Castile and Leon. Unfortunately, I cannot find any information on the potential origins of the eagle or the lamb.

Arms of Socovos, Spain

Socovos

In use since at least 1991

Blazon: Per pale argent a cross of Santiago gules between two escallops in base proper and azure a castle triple-towered argent windowed sable

I’ve chosen to blazon the escallops as proper, because while proper charges can be placed upon any metal, tincture, or fur, argent-on-argent is definitely not allowable. The “proper” color of a scallop shell is very similar to argent, so while this configuration is acceptable under the rules of blazon, it is probably not the most effective design choice.
