The flag of Los Realejos is a light blue (FIAV-code B--) over white horizontal bicolour. In its centre in a beige mantling is the coat of arms. I spotted this flag on 31 January 2007 in front of the townhall of the municipality.

Shield divided per pale; on the right side, in a golden (yellow) field, the Cross of St. Jakob. Under its sharp point are two crossed flags, the right one a purple flag of Castille (if the image would be bigger, you could see the coat of arms of Castille and Leon in its centre) stuck on a lance; the left one a green Guanche flag (añepa) made of green palm fibres. On the left side in a red field are three towers with pinnacles in a triangular formation with a key topping the lower castle. The key is connected with chains to both upper castles. All of those parts are golden (yellow). The shield is topped by a coronet.
The right half is the old shield of the municipality of Realejo Alto, the left one that of Realejo Bajo. When both municipalities merged, also the shields were connected. The current shield was licensed by the Spanish government on 6 March 1959.
