This is the flag of the Purépecha, Indigenous Nation from Michoacan, México. It has the motto “Juchari Uinapikua” that means “Our Strength/Power” in the Purépecha language. It was first used in 1980 in Santa Fe de la Laguna, Michoacan. This image here is a rendition of the flag
Each one of the quadrants stands for a region:
Purple- Tsakápundurhu – Cienega region of Zacapu
Blue – Japóndarhu – Lake region
Yellow – Eraxamanirhu- Walsh of the eleven villages
Green- Juátarhu- Purépecha Plateau
In the center there is an obsidian block that represents Señor Fuego “Kuricaueri” (in Purépecha “The Great Fire”)
The Purepecha flag surges as a symbol of unity for the Purépechas who seek to organize themselves against the repression of their nation and all Indigenous peoples.
