Freebase

  1. Wiphala

    The Wiphala is a square emblem, commonly used as a flag, representing the native peoples of all the Andes that include today's Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and parts of Argentina, Chile and Colombia. It exists in several modern varieties, which represent the Inca Empire and each of its former four regions. The Cusco Wiphala consists of seven horizontal stripes representing the colours of the rainbow. The suyu wiphalas are composed of a 7-by-7 square patchwork in seven colours, arranged diagonally. The precise configuration depends on the particular suyu represented by the emblem. The colour of the longest diagonal line determines which of the four suyus the flag represents: white for Qullasuyu, yellow for Kuntisuyu, red for Chinchaysuyu, and green for Antisuyu. There is also an alternate pattern for the Wiphala for Antinsuyu. Additionally a Wiphala also exists for Tupac Katari and the Tupac Katari Guerrilla Army. Article 6, section II of the new Bolivian constitution establishes the Wiphala as the dual flag of Bolivia along with the red, yellow, and green banner.
