Municipality of Metapán
La Municipalidad de Metapán
de nuestro municipio, cañones obtenidos en batalla librada en
Metapan en el año de 1903 contra el ejercito de Guatemala
Forman el barandal de nuestro portal.
Fronton principal, columnas dórica herencia de
la cultura y arquitectura traída por España
a los metapanecos. Al fondo un maguey
representando nuestro nombre
y en lo alto nuestra bandera
que al ondear envuelve
Palacio Municipal en
Homenaje al buen gusto de nuestros habitantes

Jaguars: Symbol of the strength and ability of the native people that now represent our municipality. The rifle barrels obtained in a battle that took place in Metapán in 1903 against the army of Guatemala now form the fence of our entryway. The entryway includes doric columns that are the legacy of the culture and architecture brought from Spain to the people of Metapán. At the center, the seal of Metapán, with a maguey plant as a background representing our name and flying high, our flag that by waving captures our dreams.
Municipal Palace in tribute to the refinement of our inhabitants
