Proposals

[A Nunavut flag proposal]
by Dean Tiegs

This is an illustration of "one of 300 submissions to Nunavut's flag competition" is adjacent to an article in the November/December 1997 Canadian Geographic.

The proposal follows the model of the Northwest Territories flag, being blue with a large central white portion the height of the flag. In front of a large red disk (representing the sun, low in the arctic sky?) is a gold inukshuk. Inukshuks are stone cairns having the rough outline of a human figure, built as landmarks by the Inuit. At the top of the white portion are Cree syllabics: the usual way of writing Cree and Inuit languages.

From the article:

Polar bears, caribou, narwhal, inukshuks--these are central elements in more than 300 submissions to a flag design competition for the soon-to-be-declared Nunavut Territory.

The ideas--mostly from grade school students but including some from professional artists--are under review by the Nunavut Implementation Commission. Plans are to choose a design by the new year, well in time for the April 1, 1999, creation of Nunavut.

Most submissions are similar to the Canadian flag with blue and white replacing the red and white and an Arctic symbol gracing the centre.

It should be emphasized that this was only one of many proposals.

I apologize for the image--I'm not skilled with a scanner or with graphics programs.
Dean Tiegs, 04 November 1997


The syllabics on the flag say, "Nunavut."
