The island of La Palma adopted a flag on 2 January 1991. It is blue and white and in the shield is the figure of the local saint, San Miguel de la Palma (Saint Michael) with a golden balance and golden palm. In the border are five flowers (violets) in purple that symbolize the five municipalities of the island.

I reGIFfed this image from the one in José Manuel Erbez's site. I have no idea how this flag compares with the one at the top, except that maybe this Palma flag is a coat-of-arms-less variation. Same about the unusual shades I just kept the original's and I do not know whether it is a good approximations of the actual and/or official color used or just the author's defaults.
