Flag of Nunavut (GIF)


Nunavut is Canada's newest, largest, and northernmost region. Its capital and largest city is Iqaluit, its population is approximately 39,000, and its area is 2,093,190 km².

The flag of Nunavut consists of yellow and white fields divided vertically by a red inuksuk—a traditional Inuit land marker—with a blue star on the top right. The star represents the Niqirtsuituq, the Northern Star, and the leadership of the elders in the community. While red represents Canada as a whole, blue and yellow symbolize the "richness of land, sea, and sky". The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 9:16, and the flag was adopted on April 1, 1999.
