Gilongan - Pronounced as Gi-longan) is a noun for Rainbow.

Mythical belief in Bijagoi Culture:

There was some mythical belief in the olden days that claimed it was forbidden to point at the "Gilongan" and if someone did they had to touch their own butthole as a pennant otherwise they will get itchy skin disease on the buttock such as ring worm. Another belief is the "Gilongan" ray emanating from holes and if someone can find the hole they will possess great power. These are merely mythical belief that turns out to be just a fantasy of the old folks due to their lack of knowledge about the Rainbow.
