Flag of Nunavut
The Flag of Nunavut was proclaimed on 1 April 1999, along with the territory of Nunavut in Canada. It features a red inukshuk—an Inuit land marker—and a blue star, which represents the Niqirtsuituq, the North Star, and the leadership of elders in the community. The colours represent the riches of the land, sea and sky. It was adopted following a process where input was sought from local communities and submissions were solicited from the Canadian public.
