  • Notes: The Nunavut tartan design looks to Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit in the selection of an eight-color palate, with white being used for four of the eight colors; dark blue, light purple, yellow and black are the remaining dye lots. The colours were chosen to represent the following: Dark Blue - 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. Darker tartans are recognized as being hunting tartans, and with hunting being a large part of the Inuit Culture, this is also reflected by the dark blue. White - the use of this colour four times represents the great impact that ice and snow has upon the lifestyle in the north, while 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. Black - the vast mineral resources found within the tundra.
