Introduction

The municipality of Nacimiento (462 inhabitants in 2007; 8,100 ha) is located 50 km north-north west of Almería, on the border with the Province of Granada. The village has kept several "cortijos" (isolated farms), which recall that Nacimiento was in the late 19th century a wealthy wine-growing village. The vineyards were subsequently replaced by barley fields, while almonds and olives are still produced in the village.

Description

The flag and arms of Nacimiento were approved by the Municipal Council on 13 March 2009 and submitted on 5 May 2009 to the General Directorate of Local Administration, which confirmed them by Decree on 16 June 2009, published in the Andalusian official gazette (Boletín Oficial de la Junta de Andalucía, BOJA) No. 123 on 26 June 2009.

The relevant parts of the Decree are the following:
