Theme of carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2003 was "The Far East". The Plaza de España was occupied by a Chinese temple in red. A papier-mâché sculpture of the Buddha was withdrawn after protests by the Buddhist community of Tenerife, who objected to a religious figure being used frivolously. The main streets of Santa Cruz were decorated red and gold, with Chinese lanterns.
