No official flag is known to exist for the bands of the Miwok people that are the most inland representatives of their people. These are the residents of three small rancherias near Yosemite National Park in central California. The three Rancherias are the Jackson (pop. 21), Shingle Springs (pop. 18), and Tuolumne (pop. 135) (AID, 39-41). the Yosemite Miwok also encompasses members living beyond the three rancherias. However, a member of their tribe, Frank Jordan, an itinerent repairman for antique bathtubs, has designed and proposed such a flag.

That flag is red and bears a bust of a Miwok warrior in profile facing the flag’s hoist. The warrior appears in shades of brown, white and black and has feathers of black and white. Above the warrior’s head in white lettering, edged in black is the word “Yosemite”, while below the bust is the word “Miwok”, also in white edged in black (sample flag provided by Jim Ferrigan).
