The Flag

Its flag is white with its logo.
Images of flag:
Since the Arctic Winter Games was first held in 1970, the even's mission - to promote athletic competition, cultural exhibition and social interaction among Northerners - has always been symbolized by three interlocking rings. Over the years, the official logo has evolved to include a multi-coloured ribbon reminiscent of the Northern Lights or aurora borealis. Most recently, in 2003, the various elements of this logo were revised in order to remove design imperfections and simplify reproduction in all media. At the same time, the Northern Lights were "put back in the night" by the addition of a black background bordered by a white circle that represents the circumpolar world. Finally, the original image of the interlocking rings was re-introduced to the logo because of its strength.
