Town History

Arroyo, founded in December 25, 1855, derives its name from the small stream from which weary travelers in the past stopped for a drink of water and to rest. Arroyo is known as "Pueblo Ingrato-Pueblo Grato". [edit] Flag It has two horizontal bands of equal size. The orange and black colors keep alive a past filled with adventure and accomplishment. The Coat of Arms is placed in the center of the flag. [edit] Coat of Arms Cut into the upper blue field a church, a rosary to the right and a flower to the left. At the base, a tower between two silver telegraph poles on green hills. At the bottom waving stripes of blue and silver, and below these, a fish. Above the shield, lies a crown of three towers filled in with purple. Below there's a banner with the motto, Arroyo Pueblo Grato (Arroyo Pleasing Town).
