Description of the flag

formerly Rae-Edzo

Unequal triband of dark blue, white and dark blue charged on the white area with a local badge. This badge consists of a light blue ring inside which there is a dark green tent against a white and light blue background divided by a wavy line.

Behchoko, with a combined population of 1662 (as of 1996), consists of two settlements, located 6 km one across the other on the opposite shores of the northern arm of the Great Slave Lake. Rae is located at 6250'N lat. and 11604'W long., on a rocky peninsula on the southeast shore of Marian Lake; Edzo is at 6240'N lat. and 11604'W long., spread over two islands and part of the mainland. Local languages are Dogrib and English, and the community belongs to the electoral district of North Slave and to the land claim area of Dogrib.
