Description of the flag

Clearly a derivative of the paraguayan national flag, charged over all with a native artistic motive.
António Martins, 06 Nov 1999

The symbol in the middle of the Guarani flag appears to be a piece of nanduti or “spider web” lace. (To see examples of nanduti lace patterns, go to www.onParaguay.com.) I question whether this is a “real” flag. I spent several weeks in Paraguay on two separate occasions, and never saw the flag pictured here, though the Paraguayan flag was prominently displayed in many places. I realize that this doesn’t prove anything, but it does make me wonder if the flag pictured here is just a nice design to decorate a web page, rather than a flag the Guarani people consider their own.
