Description of the flag

Unequal horizontal stripes of light blue over white, fimbriated yellow. The dividing line bulges in the middle of the flag along the contour of a rayed setting sun, on which there is a half sun disc behind an oil drilling tower, and a bear between two pairs of spruce. On the white bottom stripe, the lettering "Town of Norman Wells".

Norman Wells, with a population of 798 (as of 1996), is also called by the traditional name of Legohli (meaning "where is the oil") and is located at 6517'N lat. and 12650'W long., on the middle course of the Mackenzie river. Local languages are North Slavey and English, and the community belongs to the electoral district and land claim area of Sahtu.
