Tepui Flag

Tepui Flag

The Tepui are proverbial islands in the sky. More romantic that the table rock mountain, these unique formations of South America are a natural balance the Grand Canyon of North America.

Long considered sacred by the natives they were the inspiration for Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World and Disney's Up.

The flag features four colours: blue, white, yellow and green. There are five semi-circles along the bottom that represent clouds. The yellow trapezoid represents the steep edges of the Tepui. The green table top represents the biosphere that has been separated from the bottom. The sky is blue while the sun is represented by a five pointed yellow star - lest we forget that the Sun to is one of many yellow stars.
