The design of this painted paddle represents the contemporary Mapuche flag also known as Wenufoye, in Mapuzugun language, "Canelo from Heaven". This is the most representative flag of the Mapuche people nowadays.
About the Inspiration
his symbol in particular, has an important historical-cultural load for the Mapuche world. The creators of this flag were accused by the Internal Security Law of the State of Chile and therefore were imprisoned for using it. The Inter-American Court of Justice condemned the State of Chile for that cause. Therefore, it is a symbol that represents the political spirit of the Mapuche nation and their desire to be a historical subject. Although the organization that was leading this process at the time was the Aukiñ Wallmapu Gülam (Council of All Lands), the symbol has become so widespread that today it is representative of the Mapuche people.
