A tri-color flag, 81.5 x 35 in., for the Peruvian Marxist-Leninist group, Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement or Movimiento Revolucionario Tupac Amaru, formed in the early 1980s. The flag features two red side bands and a white field at the center. On the white background is the head of Tupac Amaru, an 18th-century rebel leader after which the group was named. Surrounding him is a large black ‘V' which forms into a star on the left side and a gun on the right. The ‘V' stands for the Spanish word ‘Venceremos', meaning ‘We Shall Win!'. Beneath this is the abbreviation for the guerilla group, ‘MRTA'. The top left corner still bears an original metal hanger. Some light staining throughout, else very good. Obtained directly from a well-connected State Department employee.
