Presentation of Llubí

The municipality of Llubí ((2,206 inhabitants in 2017, 3,490 ha; municipal website) is located 50 km north-east of Palma de Mallorca.

Llubí was part of the Muslim district of Muruh, which also included the present-day's municipalities of Muro, Santa Margalida and Maria de la Salut. After the conquest of Majorca by James I in 1229, the district was granted to Ponç Hug, Count of Empúries, who transferred Llubí to Bernat Descoll, Abbot of San Feliu de Guixols.
The place, renamed Castell Llubí, was eventually separated from Muro in 1836.

Flag of Llubí

The flag (photo) and the modified coat of arms of Llubí, approved on 20 June 2005 by the Municipal Council, are prescribed by a Resolution adopted on 7 May 2008 by the Majorca Insular Council, promulgated on 3 June 2008 and published on 1 July 2008 in the Spanish official gazette, No. 158, p. 29,099 (text).
The symbols are not described in the Resolution.

The symbols were designed by the On Accent agency (Antónia Calafat and Miquel Bordoy), based on the memoir redacted by the Majorca Academy of Genealogical, Heraldic and Historical Studies, the technical support of the historian Antoni Mas, and study of heraldic symbolic.
The flag is yellow with four horizontal red stripes and the municipal coat of arms in the center.
The coat of arms is "Lozengy, Or in chief a fortification with three towers surmounted by three banners in base a wolf all gules".

The coat of arms is based on earlier seals featuring a shield charged with a castle and a wolf The former, colored version of the arms was a French shield, "Per fess, 1. Azure a tower argent masoned sable, 2. Or a wolf courant gules".
The arms form a rebus of the earlier name of the place, lit. the Wolf's Castle.

The local football team CDA Llubí uses a copy of the flag with the coat of arms in hexagonal shape (photos).
