Description

The flag of the city of Trebujena is plain dark red (RGB 113/26/43) with the coat of arms in its centre. I spotted this flag on 9 November 2009.

Coat of Arms

In a pinkish field is a tree in natural colour standing in a green meadow, on top of which there perches a white dove. The shield is topped by a ducal coronet.

The local council legalized the coat of arms on 8 February 1969, claiming that 1) the coat of arms was in use already for a very long time and 2) Luis de Igartuburu said in “Manual de la Provincia de Cádiz” (Cádiz 1847) that the tree symbolizes the fertility of the region, while the dove would be an allusion to “Colomba”, which had been the municipality’s name in times of the Romans. Furthermore, Pliny confirms the existence of a chapel dedicated to Our Lady of Palomares in Roman times.
