Tenerife is a municipality in Magdalena department. It was
founded on 20 January 1543 by Francisco Henriquez.
The flag of San Tenerife is the Cartagena State flag (1811-14) and the United Provinces on New Granada provisional flag (1814). Same flag is used today also by Barranquilla (Atlantico) and Cartagena de Indias (Bolivar) and probably other municipalities.
