Wiphala
The Wiphala (Quechua pronunciation: [wɪˈpʰɐlɐ]) 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 (Tawantin Suyu) and each of its former four regions (suyus).
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 (seven squares) determines which of the four suyus (regions) 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.

This indigenous-style flower artwork appeared in front of Renacimiento Park today, along 26th St., beside the Botero sculpture of a fat man on a fat horse. The piece includes the words 'Let's Creat Dignity', 'Don't Forget' and 'Let's Remember', as well as 'Wiphala', which refers to a multicolored flag now used to represent the indigenous peoples of the Andes Mountains. A similar flag may have been used by the Inca Empire, but that's controversial.

Toronto Grand Prix Tourist: A Toronto Blog: Dia Wiphala Day
The City of #Toronto raised the Wiphala Flag to mark the autumn equinox and the anniversary of the Andean Council of Indigenous Peoples on Sunday September 23, 2012. The celebration included traditional dancers and singers performing on the podium roof of City Hall. "There will be performances by traditional singers and dancers, including "Los Danzaq" from Peru, "Wayna Thakis" from Bolivia, "Spirit Wind" from Canada, "Aztec Dancers" from Mexico, "Melody" from Bolivia and the legendary "Ayni" Group." The flag and the outfits of some of the dancers was certainly bright and colourful - the flag was made of 49 squares in the 7 colours of the rainbow.
