The flag of Nunavut was officially adopted on April1, 1999.
The colors blue and yellow symbolize the riches of the land, sea and sky. Red is a reference to Canada. The Inuksuk (centered) symbolizes stone monuments which guide people on the land, and also marks sacred and other special places.
The star is the Niqirtsuituq ( North Star), and the traditional guide for navigation. The North Star is also symbolic of the leadership of the elders in the community.
