The Tłı̨chǫ Flag

The Tłı̨chǫ flag embodies the strength and unity of our people. The tents represent the four Tłı̨chǫ Communities of Behchokǫ̀, Whatì, Gamètì and Wekweètì. The royal blue background reflects our broad Tłı̨chǫ territory. The sunrise and flowing river capture Chief Monfwi’s words, that as long as the sun rises, the river flows, and the land does not move, we will not be restricted from our way of life. Finally, the North Star represents a new era for the Tłı̨chǫ, as we move united into the future committed to protecting our language, culture and way of life for future generations. The Tłı̨chǫ flag was designed by James Wah-shee.
