The coat of arms of Pamplona, the chief town of Navarra.«Both the flag and the coat of arms of the City were established and authorized by the king Charles III the Noble in the Privilege of the Union, promulgated the 8th September of 1423. The coat of arms of Pamplona is so formed: in blue field, a silvery lion is surmounted, in the center, by a regal golden crown, and is surrounded by the coat of arms of Navarra, gold chains on purple background.In the heraldic language, the blue represents royalty, majesty, beauty and serenity. The lion is a symbol of protection, authority, magnanimity and sovereignty. Silver as a metal means innocence and virginity, while equally gold is sign of wealth, strength, faith, purity and constancy; and the purple red means value, audacity and intrepidity.»Ayuntamento de Pamplona, El Escudo de Pamplona.
