The Nation

At we learn more about this syncretic self-styled U.S. tribal nation, unrecognized as such and better described as an African American historicist identity movement, akin to the Rastafarians, the Fivepercenters, or the NoI.

The Flag

The Washitaw flag is a handsome design incorporating the colors associated in the U.S. with both Marcus Garvey and Rastafarians. Its specs seems to be easily derived from it being a horizontal tricolor with equal stripes (black over red over green), the middle one blocked on its center with a yellow square (its sides’ length equal to the stripe’s height) with on each of its four sides an adjoined equilateral triangle — green triangles to the left and right, on the red stripe, and red triangles to the top and bottom, on the black and green stripes; the length of the two remaining red rectangles is twice as long as each triangle’s height (it being indeed drawn on the diagonals of each red rectangle), for an overall ratio of (1+1+1):(2×√3̅/2+1+2×√3̅/2)
~= 3:4.46.
