I think it has something do to do with Valencia being the first place where certain bat species were discovered and Valencia generally being a place where bats reside! I also found out that murcielago means bat in spanish although in valencian it´s rata penada!

The Bat

If I'm not mistaken (any valencianistos out there, please correct me), but I think the bat goes back to Moorish times in Valencia ... something about a swarm of bats stopping a charge of raiding bandits and protecting the city.
That's what I was told ... I could be wrong.
