Symbols of La Guancha

The flag of La Guancha is prescribed by a Decree adopted on 3 December 1991 by the Government of the Canary Islands and published on 15 January 1992 in the official gazette of the Canary Islands, No. 7, p. 193 (text).
The flag is described as follows:

Flag: The length of the flag shall be one and a half its width. The panel shall be emerald green with a bend sinister (a stripe than runs from the lower left to the upper right angle), in height 1/3 of the flag's height.
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), white represents the water of the source that is the municipality's namesake, and, more generally, water resources. Green refers to the gardens and fields that surround the town and to the pinewood that grows at the foot of Mt. Teide.

The coat of arms of La Guancha is prescribed by a Decree adopted on 3 December 1991 by the Government of the Canary Islands and published on 15 Januaryr 1992 in the official gazette of the Canary Islands, No. 7, p. 195 (text).
The coat of arms is described as follows:

Coat of arms: Vert a pine (Pinus canariensis) vert (green) with the Teide in the background. In canton sinister a stream argent issuing from a rock to the base. A bordure of eight pieces, four in the cantons, gules a wheat spike or, another four in chief, base and flanks, or with a bunch of grapes proper. The shield supported by two native Canarian women holding a basket. Beneath the shield a scroll gules (red) inscribed with "Nombre te dieron agua y mujer" in letters or. The shield surmounted by a Royal crown closed.

According to José Manuel Erbez (Banderas y escudos de Canarias, 2007; website), the supporters recall the legend explaining the name of the place. During the conquest, a Castilian captain spotted a beautiful Guanche woman drawing water from a source, who ran away so quickly that he could not catch her - and of course, he never saw her again. The Spanish motto reads "Your Namesakes are Water and Woman".
