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.
