TERRITORY OF NUNAVUT (1)

DESCRIPTION

The tartan was registered with the Scottish Tartans Authority in August 2008.

Dark blue was chosen to represent the deep, icy, blue waters, which were and still are vital to the people, and the richness of the blue depicts the richness of the culture. The blue also reflects the importane of hunting to Inuit culture. White is used four times to represent the great impact that ice and snow has upon the lifestyle in the north and also depicting the purity of the new Territory. Yellow represents the return of the sun to the north every year, the warmth of its people and the bright future ahead, light purple represents the Territorial Flower, the Saxifrage, and black represents the vast mineral resources found within the tundra of the north.
