Overview

Dorado ("golden") - Its flag is composed of three stripes of equal width, golden the upper and lower stripes, and brown the center one. A brown, isosceles triangle is placed with its base at the hoist. The golden stripes symbolize the town's name, Dorado or "golden". The brown stripe stands for Dorado's Patron Saint, Saint Anthony of Padua.

Coat of Arms


by Nelson Román, 13 August 2004

I guess the blazon might be: Or, five roundels 3, 1, 1 tenne, each charged with a fleur-de-lys argent.
Lewis A. Nowitz, 18 June 2004

The correct color of this coat of arm is: the field is gold and roundels are brown. fleur-de-lys are silver. Dorado's Coat Of Arms was officially adopted March 27, 1978, and its colors are gold, silver and brown. The crown is gold with brown windows. The three towers mean that Dorado is a town, a properly constituted municipality. Underneath the crown, we can observe five disks that form a "T", which is called Tau. This "T" represents San Antonio de Padua, which is associated with the iris or lily flowers. The disks are brown and the lily flowers are silver, they represent the majestic La Plata River (The Silver River), which borders the town of Dorado to the east. The gold background of the Coat Of Arms denominates in a heraldic way the Talking Souls of the town. For example, in this case, the gold represents the name of the town; it is relative to the Patron San Antonio de Padua, whose veil is brown.
