About this photo

As you walk around Seville, you see the phrase 'NO8DO' quite a lot. It's said to stand for "No me ha dejado" (she has not deserted me), which is what Alfonso the Wise is supposed to have said when the city supported him in a disagreement with his son. The middle symbol is often written as an 8, but here you can see it's a bundle of wool, which is what the 8 is supposed to represent. The Spanish word for the wool is "madeja", so running it together with NO and DO as shown in the city emblem gives the wise words of Alfonso.
