The name "Albacete" is derived from the Andalusian name for the area,
the city having been originally called البسيط Al-Basit, in
Arabic, which translates to "the plain" in reference to the plateau
that characterizes the geography of the area.
Pascual Madoz in his famous Diccionario
geográfico-estadístico-histórico de España y sus posesiones de
Ultramar (Geographical-historical-statistical Dictionary of
its overseas territories) indicates that two hypotheses about the
Albacete are probable. In the first place he highlights
the proposal suggested by Bernardo Espinalt y Garcia, who believes
that the city was founded by the Cilicians, who called it "Celtide"
relying on Liutprand of Cremona, "in Hispaniam venientes Celtide
vocaverunt hunc locum, quem vocan Albacene corrupte mauri (in Spain
this place is called Celtide, which the Moors called Albacene
incorrectly)". The second hypothesis states that its origin may be the
"Alaba" of the Celtiberians, mentioned by Pliny the Elder and by
Ptolemy, which could result in "Alba civitas", which later became
The most common adjective used to describe the inhabitants of the town
Albacete is albacetense or, albaceteño/a, without prejudice to the
demonyms used for the inhabitants of the various population centers
that make up the area such as the aguanueveros (inhabitants of Agua
Nuevo) or colonos for the neighboring

The Shield of Albacete
According to a resolution adopted by the Plenary Council, in a session
held on February 28, 1986, the shield of
Albacete is described as
follows: "The city of
Albacete has as its shield: three towers neatly
arranged on a silver background with battlements, of stone, saber
embroidered in azure, clarified and surmounted by a saber-bat with
outstretched wings positioned at the top. It is stamped with a Marquis
crown, which is gold with stones and pearls, with eight rosettes (four
numbered and the other in pyramids of three pearls, one is visible
with two halves of the first kind and intercroppings of the second
But the agreement contained a typo, and saying "three towers well
ordered" in heraldry would mean two towers above and one below, or one
above and two below. Instead, the descriptions should read "three
towers wrongly ordered."
Later the Official Journal of
Castilla-La Mancha published on January
13, 1987, Decree 137/86 of December 30, from the Presidency and
Government of the Community Board, which approved the amendment of
the Heraldic Shield of the City of Albacete, without making
corrections to the description of the ordering of the towers.
According to the resolution adopted by the City Council plenary in a
session dated April 30, 1992, the City Council acknowledged the Order
of the Ministry of Public Administration, dated March 9 of that year,
through which the municipality of
Albacete was granted a flag, with
the following description:
"crimson red canvas, dimensions 90 cm × 155 cm
(35 in × 61 in) with the
Albacete Shield encamped in
the center, according to the amendment by Decree 137/86 of 30
December. The dimensions of the Shield are 40 cm (16 in)
high, excluding the Crown and 56 cm (22 in) if included,
with a width of 30 cm (12 in) ".
The anthem was launched on September 8, 1926, day of the Virgin of Los
Llanos (patron saint of the city), in what was referred to as the
"Provincial Anthem feast", which took place at the Plaza de Toros in
Albacete capital. The Municipal Band of
Albacete and Spanish
Infantry Regiment, among others, performed at this event.
On the night of San Juan in 1975 (day of the patron of the city), the
song was re-released at the Teatro Circo de
Albacete by the Albacete
Municipal Band and the
La Mancha Choir, becoming a hallmark of the
Provincial Palace, home of the Council of Albacete.

The nineteenth century marked the development of the city, given that
in 1833 the province of
Albacete had been created with territories
from the former territories of Cuenca,
Murcia and La Mancha, Albacete
being accorded the rank of capital.
The following year, in 1834 the
Albacete Court was established to
exercise jurisdiction over a large territory that comprised the
provinces of Ciudad Real, Cuenca and
Murcia and the aforementioned
Albacete, and which would be the antecedent to the current legal
Castilla-La Mancha after the adoption of autonomous state
in the last quarter of the twentieth century, the city being the seat
of the High Court of Justice of Castilla-La Mancha, according to
article 23 of the Statute of Autonomy of the Community.

Around the first third of the 14th century, in the time of the famous
writer Don Juan Manuel, prince of Villena, who was the governor of
Murcia and, therefore the Lord of these lands, the village began to
develop and its population to increase. In 1375 it was considered a
borough and became independent of Chinchilla, and a century later, in
Catholic Monarchs rewarded
Albacete for supporting the Crown
by granting it a licence to hold a market once a week.
