Acts of celebration of Spain's National Holiday 2021 in Santa Cruz de Tenerife

On this occasion, a solemn act of raising the Flag and a Military Music Concert will be organized in the capital of Tenerife

On the occasion of the celebration of the National Holiday 2021 in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the Canary Islands Command in collaboration with the Santa Cruz de Tenerife City Council, and with special vigilance of the COVID measures, has coordinated the holding of the following events, with the attendance of various civil and military authorities planned:

Raising of the National Flag and tribute to those who gave their lives for Spain

On Saturday October 9, at 12:00 hours, in the Calle Valentín Sanz (Plaza del Príncipe) in Santa Cruz de Tenerife will take place a solemn raising of the National Flag followed by an act of tribute to those who gave their lives by Spain, chaired by the General Chief of Staff of the Canary Islands Command.

An Honours Unit will participate made up of an inter-service company, with a section of the Army, one of the Navy and one of the Civil Guard and the Air Force, with music from the Band of the Canary Islands Command and the War Band No. 2 of the 16th Canary Brigade.

Military Music Concert

On Monday, October 11, at 7:00 p.m., at the Teatro Guimerá in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, a concert will be offered by the Band of the Canary Islands Command, under the direction of Lieutenant Manuel Castrejón, with the participation of the Band of War nº 2 of the Brigade Canarias XVI. The concert will be chaired by the Military Commander of the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

The National Holiday (Oct 12) is the day when all Spaniards remember the millenary history of the country, what we have achieved together is valued and the commitment to what remains to be shared is reaffirmed. In this sense, Spain has the Armed Forces as an effective instrument that contributes to National Security and the defence of its interests, at any time, wherever they are required.

The theme of the National Holiday 2021 is "SERVICE AND COMMITMENT".
