Manhole Cover Cork Trivet-Valencia

Valencia, City of Joy was founded by the Romans in 138BC on the banks of the Turia river. The city’s coat of arms adorns the center of the cover with its omnipresent bat hovering above the crown. The two “Ls” refer to lleialtat meaning loyalty as were the Valencians during the war of two Peters against Castille. The bat represents the crown of Aragon (c.1377AD), which morphed from the symbol of a dragon. The vertical bars of the Reial Senyera, or flag of Valencia are between the Ls and the embroidery from the pale borders the rim. Bonic. See it in coaster form with the España/Spain series.
