About the Awa

The Awá, also known as the Kwaiker or Awa-Kwaiker, are an ancient indigenous people of Ecuador and Colombia. They primarily inhabit the provinces of Carchi and Sucumbíos, in northern Ecuador, and southern Colombia, particularly the departments of Nariño and Putumayo.

(quting from the English Wikipedia)

This is therefore an Andean trans-national native community
António Martins, 11 Jul 2017

Their main organization is called UNIPA (Organización Unidad Indígena del Pueblo Awá, English: Awa Unity of Indigenous Organization). Another internal organization is CAMAWARI (Asociación de Autoridades Tradicionales indígenas Awa de Ricaurte - Cabildo Mayor Awa de Ricaurte, English: Association of Traditional indigenous Awa Authorities of Ricaurte - Council Awa of Ricaurte) (logo), their representation in the city of Ricaurte. Their main leaders are called Governors.

Plain flag

A horizontal flag, with four equal horizontal stripes (from top to bottom: red, yellow, white and green); there’s also a variant without logo, as seen here. also a variant with a smaller logo (source).
Esteban Rivera, 05 Jul 2017

This basic design is shown in the source photo as squarish, ratio ~3:4. I presume that this pattern is not specific UNIPA’s but generic Awa.)
António Martins, 11 Jul 2017

The ratio variation in witnessed photos of actual flags in use suggests that ratio observance is lax for this flag — indeed not unlike other flags made of horizontal stripes: The cases of Cabo Verde, Catalonia, or the Gay Pride / Rainbow Flag come to mind.

Flags with UNIPA logo

[flag]
image by António Martins, 11 Jul 2017

This logo is seal-like with the central disc filled with a photograph (!) of a traditional thatched hut, a standing person by its door, forest background, and, on the sky, centered and superimposed, the inscription «Ɨ̇nkal »¶« Awa Mikua», in two lines of green serifless capitals. (Two notes: 1.: On the inscription, unlike on the rim, it’s clearly spelled "Awa", not "Awá". 2.: The first letter, "Ɨ̇", is a barred, dotted, capital eye, apparently a self-styled upper case "ɨ", instead of the expected "Ɨ".)
António Martins, 11 Jul 2017

The flag of UNIPA is a horizontal flag, with four equal horizontal stripes (from top to bottom: red, yellow, white and green) and the logo in the middle as seen here (source).

Large logo

Here’s an image of this flag (source).
Esteban Rivera, 05 Jul 2017

It is also ~3:4, and the diameter of the logo just under half of the flag’s height (leaving a small gap above and below the two middle stripes it is centered on). It also includes lettering on the green stripe, centered and offset to the top — a motto set in two lines of bold heavy white serifless letters, reading: «Unidad, Territorio, Cultura y Autonomía», Spanish for «Unity, Territory, Culture and Autonomous government».

Small logo

image by António Martins, 11 Jul 2017

Here’s also a variant with a smaller logo (source).
Esteban Rivera, 05 Jul 2017

The source photo shows a more oblong flag, around 3:5, and the logo disc diameter seems to be 1/4th of the flag’s height — i.e., the height of each of the stripes.
António Martins, 11 Jul 2017
