Municipalities

Use of municipal flags

There was probably a time when municipalities used a plain white flag with a coat of arms in its centre. The Military Museum in Santa Cruz de Tenerife keeps such flags of Adeje, Arafo, Arico, Arona, Candelaria, El Sauzal, El Tanque, Fasnia, Garachico, Guía de Isora, Güímar, Icod de los Vinos, La Orotava, Puerto de la Cruz, San Miguel de Abona, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Santiago del Teide, and Tacoronte.
A few municipalities still fly such a flag, either unofficially (Candelaria and Puerto de la Cruz) or officially (La Orotava and Santa Cruz de Tenerife).

The book Heráldica institucional de Canarias by Pedro Lasso (Tenerife, 2003) shows images of coloured flags without the coat of arms. The flag in actual use are often charged with the coat of arms; in most cases, the official text prescribing the symbols allows the use of the two types of flags.
Detailed information on the flags can be found in the book Banderas y escudos de Canarias, published in 2007 by José Manuel Erbez, and in the companion website Símbolos de Canarias for subsequent updates.
