Description

Elda utiliza un paño multicolor, esta vez rojo, con el escudo en su centro y a la que se atribuye una gran antiguedad. Las armas son: gules, un lienzo de muralla flanqueado por dos torres almenadas y donjonadas de su color natural, puertad adjuradas de sable y en jefe una lis de plata; al timbre coronel abierto y va orlado de sendas ramas de palma y de olivo atadas de gules en punta.

La flor de lis tiene su origen en haber tomado la ciudad el partido borbónico durante la Guerra de Secesión, al revés que casi todas las ciudades valencianas, que acostumbraron luchar a favor del Archiduque de Austria.

"The flag of Elda, said to be very old, is red with the coat of arms in the middle. The arms are Gules a facade wall flanked by two towers crenellated proper, open portals sable and in chief a fleur-de-lis argent. The shield surmounted by an open crown and flanked by branches of palm and olive tied gules in base.

The fleur-de-lis recalls that the town took the Bourbon part during the War of the Spanish Succession, as opposed to most Valencian towns, which had joined the party of the Archduke of Austria."
