El Oso y el Madroño

The sculpture dedicated to El Oso y el Madroño, is the symbol of Madrid. The bear abounded in the mountains near the capital and that is why this animal was chosen as an emblem. Later, the Madroño was added, somewhat disconcerting if one takes into account that it is a rare tree in the region. Some think that it is due to the similarity of this word with the name of the city.
