Flag of Fuencaliente, as seen on 27 January 2014 on the Town Hall - Image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 11 February 2014
The flag of Fuencaliente is prescribed by a Decree adopted on 27 December 2012 by the Government of the Canary Islands and published on 4 January 2013 in the official gazette of the Canary Islands, No. 3, pp. 365-367 (text). The flag was originally approved on 28 June 2012 by the Municipal Council, as published on 14 September 2012 in the official gazette of the Santa Cruz de Tenerife Province, No. 123, and validated on 12 December 2012 by the Heraldry Commission of the Autonomous Community of Canary Islands.
The flag is described as follows:
Flag: Rectangular panel [...] with proportions 2:3 (one and a half longer than wide), made of a black isosceles triangle with vertices in the upper angles of the hoist and the fly and the point in the middle of the lower edge of the flag, thus forming two equal scalene triangles, sea blue at hoist and fire red at hoist.
When the flag is charged with the municipal coat of arms, this should be placed in the middle of the flag.
According to José Manuel Erbez (Banderas y escudos de Canarias, 2007; website), the flag has the same pattern as the coat of arms. Black represents volcanic flows, red represents lava, and blue represents the sea.
The coat of arms of Fuencaliente is prescribed by a Decree adopted on 17 March 2006 by the Government of the Canary Islands and published on 23 March 2006 in the official gazette of the Canary Islands, No. 58, pp. 5,597-5,598 (text). The flag was originally approved on 28 October 2005 by the Municipal Council, as published on 19 December 2005 in the official gazette of the Santa Cruz de Tenerife Province, No. 204, and validated on 7 March 2006 by the Heraldry Commission of the Autonomous Community of Canary Islands.
The coat of arms is described as follows:
Coat of arms: Per pile inverted vert a rock with an aboriginal incription three brooks issuant two and one all argent, dexter or a holy staff proper over a flame gules, sinister or a bunch of grapes proper. The shield surmounted with a Royal crown closed.
