A flag for Apex
The Iqaluit suburb of Apex may soon have its own flag.
Residents have often complained to their MLA, Ed Picco, about not having one. So Picco initiated a contest to design a flag for the community. He received more than two dozen submissions, mainly from students from Nanook School in Apex.
Last week, Picco told MLAs that he and his volunteers have selected the winning entries.
“I will also be sending the five posters to a flag-making company to illustrate some mockups. From there, a possible flag for Apex may become a reality,” he said on Dec. 3.
