This is the second part of the hub about Cities and Towns in Puerto Rico. The first hub includes the cities and towns of Puerto Rico with names starting from A to C. This hub will include from D to J.

We have 78 Municipalities, to present them I decided to start in alphabetical order and sharing their nicknames, places of interest and Coat of Arms.

Heraldry - Shields and Interpretation

A shield is a graphical representation of the values, beliefs or symbols of a particular group. This group can be a family, a people, a kingdom or any other institution. Their origin and rules come from back in Europe during the Middle Ages. During the crusades, the armor made the knights unrecognizable and used the idea of ​​painting emblems on shields to distinguish allies in the battlefield.

For centuries, hundreds of regions and various noble families adopted a series of symbols and drew or engraved on their shields of war. The alliances, ranks, family ties and other historic features can be interpreted in the designs represented in these coats of arms. This is the reason why I am sharing them, as part of the presentation of each City or Town in Puerto Rico.
