This webpage reported by Dov Gutterman contains an article by Spanish vexillologist Tomás Rodríguez on the flag of the town of Tarifa, published on the September 1992 issue of Aljaranda, Revista de Estudios Tinerfeños. The flag was approved by the town council on June 12th 1992 and first hoisted on September 21st 1992. The flag is based on the coat-of-arms granted on January 29th 1968 (but is not a banner of arms), and described as:

Bandera rectangular, de proporciones 2:3, compuesta por tres franjas horizontales, roja la superior cargada con tres llaves amarillas verticales, blanca la central y azul la inferior de proporciones 2/3, 1/6 y 1/6 respectivamente.
that is a flag with a 2:3 ratio, made up of three horizontal stripes, the topmost red charged with three vertical yellow keys occupying 2/3rds of the height, the middle one white and the bottom one blue both 1/6th of the height.
