The Franco-Nunavut flag is adopted

In the Franco-Nunavut flag, the blue represents the Arctic sky, and the white represents snow, which is abundant in this vast territory.

The central shape evokes an igloo that contains an inukshuk, symbolizing the human presence.

At the base of the inukshuk is a dandelion, which reflects Canada’s and Nunavut’s French-speaking community, tenacious and enduring, adapting to its environment, bending with the wind, but always rising back up, proud to be alive.
