Calabasas is an affluent city in Los Angeles County, California in the western United States. It is located in the southwestern San Fernando Valley and the Santa Monica Mountains. As of the 2000 census, the city population was 23,123. The city was formally incorporated in 1991.
I have read that Calabasas might mean pumpkin, squash, or gourd, derived from the Spanish “calabaza”. Some historians hold the theory that it is merely a translation of the Chumash word “calahoosa”, but since that also refers to some type of gourd, it only matters to linguists. Calabasas is proud of its unique name, and every October, the city hosts a “Pumpkin Festival” to celebrate fall, the local wares and talents of Calabasas merchants, and of course, the pumpkin for which the colorful city was named.
The City’s official logo, depicting the red-tailed hawk flying over the Santa Monica Mountains, symbolizes a commitment to preserving the community’s natural beauty and semi-rural quality of life. The City logo is featured on the Calabasas City flag which is flown in front of City Hall and hangs in the City Council Chambers.
