Presentation of Perros-Guirec

The municipality of Perros-Guirec (7,149 inhabitants; 1,416 ha) is a sea resort located on the northern coast of Brittany.
The name of the city comes from pen ros, in Breton the head of the hill, and Guirec, a monk who landed here in the VIth century. Perros-Guirec is located on the Côte de Granite Rose (Coast of Pink Granite), famous for its heaps of pink rocks. A scenic Sentier des Douaniers (Customers' Path) links Perros-Guirec to the small port of Ploumanac'h.
The Polish novelist Henryk Sienkiewicz (1846-1916) spent a few years in the castle of Costaëres, built on an islet a few fathoms off Ploumanac'h.

The the coat of arms is blazoned: Quarterly Or and Azure, a chief azure three escallops Or too.

The current logo was adopterd in september 2019 (source). The main elements of the former logo were conserved : the puffin (the largest colony in France nests in the Sept-Îles, an archipelago which is part of the commmune of Perros-Guirec), and blue and pink colors.
According to the mayor, Erven Léon, “The puffin has always been the symbol of the city. It is also the symbol of Perros’s exceptional environment, both through the reserve of the 7 islands and the site of Ploumanac’h.” The puffin has been modernized, more stylized. The colours are blue, a reference to the sea and pink, for the pink granite rocks.
