The Shire of Arenal is a division of the Kingdom of Meridies in the Society for Creative Anachronism (the SCA), serving Florida’s Panhandle Counties of Escambia and Santa Rosa—containing the cities of Pensacola, Milton, Jay, Pace, Century, Gulf Breeze, Navarre, etc.—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 symbol above shows the wreath of a group in the SCA surrounding six blue wings symbolizing the US Navy’s Blue Angels, who are based here.
