Leaders celebrate 25 years of Nunavut with commemorative flag

MLAs pose outside the legislative assembly in Iqaluit Monday with Aluki Kotierk, president of Nunavut Tunngavik Inc., for the unveiling of a flag to celebrate the territory’s 25th anniversary. April 1 will mark 25 years since the establishment of the territory of Nunavut. Holding the flag are, from left, Tony Akoak, legislative assembly speaker; Kotierk; Pamela Gross, deputy premier; Janet Pitsiulaaq Brewster, MLA for Iqaluit-Sinaa; and Craig Simailak, MLA for Baker Lake.

    This flag is… disappointing. For a territory renowned for art; i think we could have done better.

    Some pics of all the money they wasted traveling to France on a renegade mission to get a 200-year-old priest.

    If Nunavut became Nunavut on april 1st, then why do we celebrate it on July 9th?
    Whats the reason for july 9th for Nunavut day should change it to april 1st.
