Coat of Arms

 

The coat of arms is described in this way:

"The shield is divided in half and then subdivided. In the first section, on a gold background and above azure and silver waves, is a steep cliff face in its natural colour showing the mouth of a cave, in gold, with a jagged outline, which is protected by a wild fig in vert. In the second section, on a gules background and above azure and silver waves, is a hill in its natural colour, topped by a castle in gold, with details in sable and gules. In the third section, on a silver background, is a jábega, a traditional fishing boat in its natural colours above azure and silver waves. Its three oars dip into the waves, and above it is a silver crescent moon, and above that an azure disk representing the planet Venus. The moon is outlined in sable.

Above the coat of arms is a closed Royal Crown, which is a circle of gold, set with precious stones, composed of eight rosettes of acanthus leaves, five of them visible, interpolated with pearls. From the leaves emerge diadems encrusted with more pearls that converge on an azure globe, with a golden equator and semi-meridian, topped with a gold cross and with the crown lined in cloth of gules."

Himno

Un rincón hay en la tierra
donde sueña el corazón,
un rincón donde se encuentran
los que buscan la ilusión.
Y por eso lanzo al viento,
con la fuerza de mi voz,
estas notas de emoción
que son reflejo fiel de mi pasión.

Rincón de la Victoria
arrullado por el mar
retazo de la gloria
paraíso de la paz.

Florecieron los almendros
bajo un cielo tropical
y ahora juegan los destellos
con las olas de cristal.
Es como un jardín inmenso
hecho con flores de luz,
es un paraíso azul
donde sueña feliz la juventud.

Rincón de la Victoria
arrullado por el mar
retazo de la gloria
paraíso de la paz.

(José Novo)

 

Anthem

There exists a corner of the Earth
Where the heart still beats,
A corner where seekers
Uncover their dreams.
So with all the strength of my voice
To the winds I sing,
This reflection of my passion,
These notes of true feeling.

Rincón de la Victoria
Lulled by the sea;
A remnant of glory,
A paradise of peace.

Under a tropical sky
Flower almond trees,
And sparkling light plays
Dancing over crystal seas.
Like an immense garden
Filled with flowers of light,
A blue paradise
Where youth’s dreams are bright.

Rincón de la Victoria
Lulled by the sea;
A remnant of glory,
A paradise of peace.

(José Novo)
