At Millamap webpage, there is this comment: «According to Mr. Cesar Famin, in his Historia de Chile 1839, the Mapuche flag is made of a white star on a blue field.»

White star is small and was generally six pointed (even eight pointed, always in XVI-XVII centuries) until XIX century when five pointed star came on use. The blue was always light. Theres a suposed flag from Lautaro, the heroic aracaunian leader that fight against spanish invaders, that is light blue with a white central device as several small squares one at side of other in diagonal; this was used in Valdivia Battle and I have only a reconstruction. In a spanish picture show Lautaro with a flag as the above.

The main motive, in blue, is very similar to the chakana, an Inca symbol, here depicted simply as a figure enclosed in a crude zigzag line, made from isometric segments (stacked square blocks 1+3+5+3+1).

I was looking at the biography of Mapuche Indian Chief Lautaro and there are some pictures of him waving what seems to be a Mapuche flag.
