Description

Flag adopted in 2003.

The flag's ratio is 2:3. It is a red over white over yellow horizontal tricolour with the coat of arms in the centre of the flag on the frontside only. The height of CoA is estimated at half of total height with the crown being in the red stripe and the fess point (?) – i.e. the bottom of shield – touching the yellow stripe.

Red is the colour of the Virgin of the Lights, the patron of Los Silos, who wears also a red coat in the coat of arms. White is the colour of the dynasty of Bourbons, who are again the rulers of Spain. Yellow is the colour of wheat, which gave the municipality its name.

Coat of Arms

The shield is divided per fess, the chief is divided per pale. The dexter chief shows in a silver (white) field an image of St. Mary of the Lights in natural colour, wearing a red coat. The sinister chief shows in a golden (yellow) field a black tower with silver windows and gate and silver masoned. The base shows in a blue field a mountain in natural colour topped by a black cross, having three black entrances. The shield is topped by a crown.

The coat of arms was established by order of the Consejería de Presidencia del Gobierno de Canarias on 9 May 1989, published in BOC on 22 May 1989.
