Why?[edit]

Why does this have a volcano template?? --euyyn 21:34, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Because the entire island is a large volcano which rises from the seafloor. --Seattle Skier (talk) 08:33, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Flag[edit]

Is this subsection really needed? We can see the colors are green and white. I would understand it being there if it said the meanings for the colors and pattern, but otherwise it just seems useless. Futuremyst 18:28, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Fortunate Isles[edit]

I temporarily removed the following text

In 850 BC, the island was mentioned by Homer in the Odyssey, the Canary Islands as Insulae Fortunatae.

as it lacked references and I have a number of other problems with it. Firstly, Homer didn't write in Latin (but the wikilinked "Fortunate Isles" article gives the greek which is helpful). Should give the Greek and an English equivalent if anything. Secondly, according to the wikilinked article, the identification of the Fortunate Isles is in doubt, so this ought to be mentioned at least.

Can anyone supply references so that this useful material can be restored? CecilWard (talk) 11:09, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

Translation of Fuerteventura[edit]

Someone might want to double check the translation of "Fuerteventura". My Spanish still needs some work, but I'm pretty sure it means "Strong Fortune" (literally) and not "Strong Wind" which would look like Fuerteviento. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bstoopmarine (talkcontribs) 16:00, 8 October 2013 (UTC)


No it means Wild or Strong Wind - Fuerte Ventura from Fuerte - Strong Wild. I assure you as I am Spanish! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.244.55.105 (talk) 13:17, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
