Presentation of Puebla de la Reina

The municipality of Puebla de la Reina (741 inhabitants in 2019; municipal website) is located 100 km south-east of Badajoz and 30 km north-east of Villafranca de los Barros.
Puebla de la Reina (The Queen's Village) was originally known as Puebla de la Jara (The Rockrose's Village). Queen Isabel the Catholic rewarded the villagers' hospitality during her visit by separating the village from Hornachos and renaming it after herself.

The symbols are described as follows:

Flag: Rectangular, in proportions 2:3. Composed of a red cross throughout cantonned in white in the hoist's upper canton and fly's upper canton, the two other cantons, yellow.
Coat of arms: Per fess, 1. Gules a town or surmounted by a Royal crown open of the same, 2. Argent a Cross of Saint James gules. Grafted in base, Or a bush of rockrose vert. The shield surmounted by a Royal crown closed.

The first quarter forms a rebus of the town's name, while the base recalls its original name.
