About the flag

In 1992, in the V Centenary of the discovery of America, the Mapuche people adopted a national flag that was presented for the first time to the Spanish king in his visit to Chile. The flag is based on the Nagche regional flag, but is quite different in the border, the stripes (only three) and the central emblem.

The newspaper today has a picture (can’t find it online) of a Mapuche protest in Chile. Flying is a Mapuche main flag, but with the border (the shapes looking more like diamonds, but that may be the picture) covered three (if not four; can’t see) sides, and no emblem on the stripes (possibly two, maybe three). It’s somewhat like the Nagche flag, but with no emblem and possibly less stripes.
