The objective of the research is to explore the motifs and meanings of Banyumasan batik as a form of cultural political identity. This research used a descriptive qualitative method. The data were obtained through interview, observation, and documentation. The results of the study showed that Banyumasan Batik is one of the batik with typical motifs that are firm and straightforward. The colour patterns are inspired by plants and animals. Dark dominant colour is a characteristic of inland batik. The beauty of batik appears in the harmonious blend of colours between different fields, lines and contents. It is in contrast to other batik motifs that emphasize more of decorative forms. Banyumasan batik displays forms of symbolism. Typical batik motifs that developed consisted of Lumbon (spice), Jahe Serimpang, Sekar Surya, Serayuan, Pring Sedapur, Tirtatejo, Godong Kosong, Ayam Puger, Babon Angrem, Gemek Setekem, Sida Mukti, Sida Luhur, Sekar Jagad, and Udan Riris. The meaning contained in the motif shows the cultural political identity that developed in the Banyumas community
