Coat of Arms

[Arms of Santa Fe, New Mexico] image by António Martins-Tuválkin, 27 May 2008

The city coat of arms (at and in many other locations) is filled with the U.S. coat of arms (but with stars on its chief) and a chief impaled of "Old Spain" and what I supposed to be Mexico: white with a blue eagle on wreath pattern; "Old Spain" is per pale Gules and Or a castle tower and a lion rampant counter changed. At a very large image shows a city police sleeve patch with the city coat of arms (with red eagle instead, though).

Around the shield there's usually the wording "La Villa Real de Santa Fé de San Francisco de Asís", but on the NAVA flag image (where the long name shows in uchronic insular letters) there's a halo around the shield, and a scroll below it, with the long name around it all.

A b/w representation of the coat of arms as shown on the flag is in the official site at, a PDF entitled Agreement between the City of Santa Fe and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (and surely in many other such documents).

At the official website favicon shows a logo consisting of a black bend crossed over a blue counterbend below a red disc, in informal brush script style. I would not be surprised to see this on a flag, too.
