Description of the flag

The flag of the Village of Haines Junction, Yukon, consists of three vertical stripes of blue-white-blue. In the center of the white stripe the village logo is positioned.

Here is the flag history: The Village of Haines Junction was incorporated in 1984. In 1985 a contest was held for the design of a logo which was won by local artist Libby Dulac. In December 1990 there was a flag coloring contest. I believe our flags were first purchased in 1991 or 1992. The logo depicts the town situated at the base of the St. Elias Mountain Range, on the junction of the Alaska Highway and the Haines Road. The purple flowers are Fireweed - the official flower of the Yukon. The flags are the same size as the Canada and Yukon flags. - Information courtesy of the Village Administration..

A photo gives additional precision on the flag. The respective proportions of the vertical stripes appear to match those on the flag of Yukon (2:3:2). The shade of blue is quite light, much lighter than on the flag of Yukon.
