Description of the flag

The Inuktitut name for Gjoa Haven is Usqsuqtuuq, which means "a place of plenty of fat". The name refers to the fattened fish and seal that were abundant in the area. The explorer Roald Amundsen first travelled to the area in 1903 to gain information about the Magnetic North Pole. The community is named after the Amundsen's ship, the Gjoa.
