Pangnirtung is an Inuit hamlet, Qikiqtaaluk Region, in the Canadian territory of Nunavut. It is located at 6608' North Latitude and 6545' West Longitude on Baffin Island. As of the 2006 census the population was 1,325 an increase of 3.8% from the 2001 census. Pangnirtung is situated on a coastal plain at the coast of Pangnirtung Fjord, a fjord which eventually merges with Cumberland Sound. The area of the town is 7.54 square kilometres.

In 1921, Hudson's Bay Company established a trading post in Pangnirtung, and two years later the Royal Canadian Mounted Police erected a permanent office. The first government appointed teacher arrived in 1956, which in 1962 was followed by the first administrative office.

The hamlet flag is shown on a photo on a blog at A white flag with the hamlet logo on it.
