Armband for CD Tenerife vs SD Huesca
In the upcoming SD Huesca’s game against CD Tenerife, our captain will wear an armband to bond the provinces of both teams together.
In this case, two impressive trees have been depicted: the Millennial Drago of Icod de los Vinos, a symbol in the island of Tenerife, and the Millennial Carrasca of Lecina in Huesca, the Spanish and European Tree of the Year in 2021.
Both of them are located in areas that are rich in their environment, hence the green colour of our design. Apart from the crowns of the trees, which are usually their brightest part, their trunks and roots have also been represented, as an analogy among tree-land-roots.
The Millennial Drago of Icod de los Vinos – Tenerife
The most typical tree in the Canary Islands is the drago. You can find a wide variety of them all around Tenerife. This millennial Drago, located in Icod de los Vinos and estimated to be around 800–1,000 years old, is truly symbolic for the island. It is 17 metres (56 ft) high, with a circumference of around 20 metres (66 ft), weighing about 140 tonnes. It is surrounded by a large number of indigenous plant species from the Canary Islands.
The Millennial Carrasca of Lecina – Huesca
The ancient Millennial Carrasca (holm oak) of Lecina is considered to be one of the trees with longer lifetimes in Spain, with an estimated age of 1,100 years. It is a natural treasure in an ecosystem rich in its environment, its geology and in its culture. The height up to its crown is 16.5 m (54 ft), and its diameter is 28 metres (92 ft). It was recognized as a Singular Tree of Aragon and named Spanish and European Tree of the Year in 2021.
Here you can find its legend and how to visit this remarkable millennial tree.
