The Shire of Arenal is a division of the Kingdom of Meridies in the Society for Creative Anachronism, serving Florida’s Panhandle Counties of Escambia and Santa Rosa—containing the cities of Pensacola, Milton, Gulf Breeze and Navarre—in NW Florida. Part of Florida's Emerald Coast--an area known for magnificent, pure-white-sand beaches and Spanish heritage--the name Arenal is based on the Spanish word for "sandy" or "sandy spot". Our device, or "coat of arms", above shows the wreath of a Shire surrounding six blue wings symbolizing the US Navy's Blue Angels, who are based here.
