Results of a competition
The project is meant to stimulate the local pride, as a way to fight against the shyness, coldness and fear, that is said to characterize the Chilean people. A competition was organized to design 42 coat of arms, trying to sum up in an image the history and personality of each of the "hills" that configure the city.
