Coat of Arms


by Nelson Román, 28 July 2004

The colors gold and red have been chosen for Coat of Arms of San Lorenzo, because they are the colors of the Muñoz lineage shield, from which Don Valeriano Muñoz de Oneca belonged to, founder of the town of San Miguel de Hato Grande, today San Lorenzo. The grill is the traditional symbol of San Lorenzo, deacon and martyr, patron of the town, because in a grill he underwent the martyrdom, slowly burned to death. The hill or mountain represent the Gregorio Hill, which dominates the San Lorenzo panorama. The cross is one of the heraldic attributes of San Miguel Arcángel, whose name was given to the town in the begining.
