Barrio Agronomia was created in 1904.

NEIGHBORHOOD EMBLEM : its author is Damian Rodrigo Gardiol who was the winner of the contest held at CGPC Nş 15 on Tuesday March 29, 2011.

Meaning and documentation of the emblem:
The shield is represented by a large Tree, symbol of life, the Agronomia parks and the Earth element appear. This Tree has the particularity of symbolizing with its branches two large lungs, suggesting the importance of this green space in the city. Its base is made up of a Meteorological Central Tower, alluding to the National Meteorological Center located in the neighborhood, which provides climate data and meteorological forecasts of great importance for the city. A large initial letter "A" of AGRONOMIA is inscribed in this tower. The trunk of the Tree is formed by a water tower, symbolizing the same one that is in the Rawson neighborhood, being one of the oldest constructions in the place, inaugurated in 1934 composed of 9 buildings of ground floor. and 3 high floors and 104 individual houses, the neighborhood where the famous writer Julio Cortazar lived. Inside this we find an ear of wheat symbolizing the Faculty of Agronomy. At the top of the Tree appears the head of a cow representing the Veterinary Faculty. Crowning the figure the Sun appears next to the astrological symbol of Libra in reference to September 25, a date established as the day of the neighborhood which contains a train track representing the Urquiza railway that crosses the neighborhood.

The Yellow and Black colors represent the mail internationally, taking into account that a large part of these lands were ceded to mail employees, a property in which the Communications Club of great sporting, social and cultural importance is located. These colors also identify the "Communications", "El Talar" and "Moran" clubs.
Sun: Represents the Fire element, it appears next to the Astrological symbol of Libra, since it is under this constellation at the time of its founding date (September 25, 1904)
