Makkovik is officially designated "Inuit Community of Makkovik" in a rank of
town. With a population of approximately 360 people, the Inuit Community of
Makkovik is located approximately 210 kilometres by air northeast of Happy
Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador.
The new version of the town's website has a photo of the flag and a short history of it: http://www.makkovik.ca/home/57
"The Makkovik Flag was designed by the late Anthony Andersen during a high school contest. This flag is meant to serve the unique identity of the people of Makkovik. The colors are gold and burgundy, which is also the same colors used by the local school sportsmeet team. When you visit the community you will see symbols of the flag present at each gateway in the community (leaving the airport before you enter the community to the local wharf). Lapel pins of the flag are available at the local community government office at 16 Andersen Street."
