San Cristóbal de La Laguna - Blas Cabrera Felipe

Coat of arms of San Cristóbal de La Laguna: an island with a volcano spitting fire, on waves, between a castle and a lion, and above the Archangel Saint Michael, holding a spear in one hand and a shield in the other. In the border, the inscription michael arcangele veni in adjutorium populo del* thenerife me fecit (Archangel Michael, come to aid the people of God, Tenerife has made me; * 'del' should be 'dei'). These elements symbolize the incorporation of the island of Tenerife to the Crown of Castile and its evangelization under the patronage of Saint Michael.
