The Yaqui flag is divided in three stripes charged with stars, a moon, sun, and a Christian cross. Blue is for strength and the sky. White stands for purity. Red is for the blood. The sun is the God Father which lights and provides life; moon is the Mother Goddess protector of night and day; while stars are for the spirits of ancestors. The cross in the center of the flag represents the Catholic faith adopted by the Yaqui people.

Through the Internet you will see may variants of the flag. One of them bearing colors reversed to red, white and blue. In others, the moon is next to the red stripe. The depiction of the sun is not uniform too. Many photos shows flags surely inspired in that published in
