Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on February 7, 2005.

The cross in the arms is the cross of St. George, the patron saint of the city. The bordure is derived from the Spanish Royal arms and shows the lion of Léon, the castle of Castille, the pales of Aragón and the pomegranate of Granada (as Almería was part of the Kingdom of Granada).
