Description

A vertically-divided red-white-red flag with the coat of arms in its centre. The stripes have equal width. I spotted this flag on top of the town hall on 23 January 2007. According to HIdC there was the same flag granted but without the coat of arms.

According to José Manuel Erbez, Icod got an own flag on 22 April 2002, published in BOC on 27 May 2002. It is a vertically divided red-white-red flag. The stripes have equal width. Officially it is a very dark red. I chose the same colour that Erbez used in Banderas de Canarias (in his new website the colour has a more brownish touch).

The dark red colour symbolizes dragonblood, that is the fresh, liquid resin of the dragontrees (used e.g. for polishing furniture) while the white colour represents the snow of Teide mountain.

The version with coat of arms is otherwise identical. BOC recommends ("preferentemente") a height of 2/3 of total height of flag. But Erbez shows in Banderas de canarias and in Simbolos de Canarias a version with the coat of arms within the white stripe, therefore the height is less than recommended.

It is the same as with coat of arms, but with light red stripes on both sides. This variant I spotted at the local town hall on 23 January 2007. The coat of arms was indeed completely within the white stripe and of less height than recommended.

Former Flag

José Manuel Erbez wrote to me that it was considered good use on Tenerife to show white flags with the coat of arms in its centre at events, especially fiestas of the local saints.

Icod gained an own coat of arms on 9 October 1921, so it is possible that Icod used a white flag from 1921 to 2002. I spotted that pattern, but only in the Military Museum of Santa Cruz de Tenerife on 30 January 2007.

Coat of Arms

The shield is divided per pale. On the right side is an image of the Pico del Teide covered with snow in front of a blue sky. In front of the mountain is a sandy landscape with one green cactus. On the left side is an image of the 1000-years-old dragontree (Drago Milenario), which stands in a park in Icod d.l.V.; the shield has a green border covered with eight golden wine grapes. Icod is famous for its vineyards, as the name says. The shield has four Guanche chiefs dressed in fur and waving branches of palm as supporters. It is said, that they are the chiefs Belicarde, Rosmen, Pelinor and Djoria. Icod is the name of an ancient Guanche tribe and mini-kingdom. The shield is finally topped by a crown.
