This flag is the representation of primarily the Guambiano or
Misak tribe, but it also represents Colombian South Western
native peoples. The Guambiano people are mainly based in the
Municipality of Silvia (Department of
Cauca), but also on the Department of Huila. Cauca is one of Colombia's
Departments that is most populated by native people.
