The coat of arms of Alicante tells about the origins of the city. It depicts a castle on top a rock by the sea. The castle is surrounded by two inscriptions:
- A. L. , for the initials of Akra-Leuka, name of the Greek settlement
- L. A. , for Lucentum (Latin name of the city) and Alacant (present name of the city, with an obvious Arab origin).
Here you can see the coat of arms carved in the main facade of the Town Hall.
