ALGERRI

Region : Catalonia
Province : Lleida
District (Comarca) : Noguera

Arms (crest) of Algerri

Official blazon

  • (es) Escudo losanjado: de gules, un jarrón de oro. Por timbre una corona de barón.
  • (ca) Escut caironat: de gules, un gerro d'or. Per timbre una corona de baró.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on October 4, 1996.

The arms are canting: they show a "gerra" (Catalan for jug, pitcher). The baron crown is at the top because Algerri was the centre of a barony in the XVI century.
