The municipality Granadilla de Abona is using a 2:3 flag with horizontal stripes red-white-red with ratio 1:2:1 with the CoA in the centre of the white stripe, i.e. its height is half height of flag. The backside of flag has no CoA. The red colour (on both sides) is a very dark one (pomegranate-red).

The flag of Granadilla de Abona has a ratio is 2:3. It is a red over white over red horizontal tricolour with the coat of arms in the centre of the white stripe. This is the version described in BOC. Nevertheless in HIdC there is a version without coat of arms with a very dark red, reflecting the colours of pomegranates. It s the same with the standard with coat of arms shown in the Military Museum of Sta. Cruz d. T.

Granadilla's [former] flag is horizontally striped purpure over pink over purpure, with the coat of arms in its centre. I spotted this flag on 30 January in the Military Museum of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. This might be only a indoor flag. Maybe the outdoor version is purpure over white over purpure.

Coat of Arms

image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 23 Apr 2007

A blue shield with a fully rigged sailing ship topped by two crossed Guanche sticks, which are topped by a coronet; all objects are silver (white). The shield has an orange border with ten silver (white) pomegranates, which gave the municipality its name. Abona is the name of an ancient Guanche mini-kingdom. The shield is topped by a crown.
