Official seal of Isla de la Juventud
In September 1924, the Isla de la Juventud Mayor Ramon Llorca Soto, conceived and designed the official seal of the municipality Isla de Pinos, now Isla de la juventud.
The argument and design by the Mayor was: "Our patriotic ideals are born and grow sturdy and strong high like a pine tree as the rocks of our mountains, warmed by the sun of freedom."
The seal is shaped like an elongated oval with both ends cut top, like a quarter of the field and in the middle of a valley, coming up a native pine whose branches reach the top, behind three mountains, and behind them, the solar disk, spreading its rays across the sky of the landscape. An oak branch and a laurel which tips lean inward on its axis, fringing the right and left sides of the seal, on the top a five-pointed star.
The seal was painted in oil by Adriana Serra pinera Bayo, and presented to council by Ramon Llorca Soto, February 14, 1933, to be approved as the official emblem of the Island.
In extraordinary session on March 7, 1933 the seal was accepted.
Approved as the official seal of the municipality, it should appear on all official documents of the council.
