Spain Las Palmas Mission Christmas Ornament
This ornament is a great way to remember your missionary and their service during the holidays! The design on this ornament is inspired by the Flag of Spain.
Made out of a lightweight and very durable transparent acrylic, these ornaments will not weigh your tree down and can definitely withstand being dropped by the little ones should they get too curious around the tree. The acrylic is cut into a 4 inch circle and then laser etched with the name of the mission and graphics inspired by the region served.
The design on this ornament is inspired by the Flag of Spain and it’s Coat of Arms. On each side of Spain’s coat of arms is the Pillars of Hercules, which historically represent the Strait of Gibraltar. Each column is covered by a ribbon about midway across stating the Latin motto “Plus Ultra,” meaning “further beyond.” In between the columns is a shield consisting of six parts. The top left represents the Kingdom of Castile, the top right represents the Kingdom of Leon, the bottom left represents the Crown of Aragon and the bottom right represents the Kingdom of Navarre. In the middle of these four images is a circle with three fleurs de lis which represent the Anjou section of the House of Bourbon. The Kingdom of Granada is represented at the bottom of the shield. A crown, representing the Crown of Spain, tops off the entire coat of arms.
Get one for yourself or send a pair out to your missionary and their companion!
Mission Social Media Groups
These groups are a great way to connect with other families who have missionaries in the same area, reconnect with other missionaries you served with in the past or simply learn more about the mission. Depending on the membership activity in the group, these can be truly amazing resources!
