Unified Symbol of the Archipelago

La Bandera de Canaria - Canary Islands Flag

The Canary Islands Flag is the standard under which all of the Canary Islands are unified. Composed of three colors that together represent the feeling of the Archipelago; White, Blue and Yellow. This composition was named as the official flag of the Canary Islands in 1982, at the time of the confirmation of the statute of the Canarian Autonomy.

Meaning of union

Despite being officially adopted since 1982, the Canary Islands Government hasn't established the meaning of the colors that make up the flag of the autonomous community. However, various factors give rise to the representative flag of the Canary Islands: The colors represent the two maritime provinces that are in the Canary archipelago; Tenerife (white and blue) and Gran Canaria (blue and yellow) with the order of chromatic reading from the left to the right, in line with the geographic position of each province.

A tribute to the climate

Almost poetically, it is said that the white represents the purity, the softness of the air and the excellent atmosphere that permeates every corner of the Canary Islands. The blue speaks of the sea and the close relationship the islands have with the ocean. And finally the yellow: the sun that bathes the Canary Islands, the warmth of its people and the ideal and optimal climate that it represents and that attracts so many visitors year after year and that generates so much happiness in the inhabitants of the archipelago.
