The Provincial municipality of Huancabamba (124,298 inhabitants; 42,541 ha)
is part of the Piura Region, northern Peru - on the border with Ecuador.
Huancabamba is the main center of traditional medicine in Peru, thanks to the
icy, healing waters of the Huaringas lagunas, located 3,950 m asl.

This flag presents a very interesting design, even if with poorly chosen
colors, showing an arrangement of polygons made from vertical, horizontal
and half-quadrant diagonal (45°) lines, all set in a 3:5 rectangle; trivial
specs are apparently (1+2):(1+3+1):
An ascending diagonal line cuts the flag in two chiral trapezoids, the bottom
fly one in lighter, whitish shades; the underlying design is a brown over
yellow over green descending diagonal design, with the yellow area extending
to a 1×1 square at top hoist and bottom fly. Very nice!
(The ascending diagonal thing may be an attempt to give a much less
original design a 3D fluttering look. But I hope not!)
