The Northwest Territories flag was adopted in 1969. It consists of three vertical bars: blue, white, and blue. The center white bar is somewhat larger than the other two. There were previous designs before the current form.
The Northwest Territories flag was picked from a contest that was won by Robert Bessant. It features the coat of arms in the center. The white bar is known as the Canadian pale.
