About the flag

A photo containing a Mapuche flag from the argentine magazine El Arca del Nuevo Siglo, with a caption identifying two Mapuche ladies (one from Argentina and a second from Chile) holding «a flag that ransoms back the identity symbols of the great Mapuche nation».
António Martins and Osvaldo Gorgazzi, 01 Oct 2000

Similar to the reported flag, though with some differences:

  • the kultrun is red, not black
  • only eight white chakanas on each side
  • there is no empty white space on the top
  • the flag seems quite squarish, around 3:4

About Lafequenche flag I take image from a Mapuche magazine, and I draw as show on this magazine. There’s no color quoted for the central device. But I know now that the picture in magazine was a bit erroneous.
