Standard of the Orfeó Feliuà
(1900)
Sant Feliu de Codines (Vallès Oriental)

In 1900 textile businessman Emili Carles-Tolrà i Amat commissioned Antoni Gaudí to make a standard for his aunt, the Marques of Sant Esteve de Castellar, to present to the Orfeó Feliuà, a choral group recently founded in Sant Feliu de Codines. Made in cork with brass overlays and leather straps, Gaudí’s standard incorporates curious symbolic details like the round form bearing the name of the Orfeó, an allusion to the martyrdom of Saint Feliu on a millwheel, and the pineapples which hang from the straps, in memory of the former name of town: Sant Feliu del Pinyó.
