Flag of Nunavut (GIF)



The flag of Nunavut (French: Drapeau du 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.

Nunavut is Canada's newest, largest, and northernmost region. Its capital and largest city is Iqaluit; its population is approximately 38,780 (2019); and its area is 2,093,190 km².
