Eeyou Istchee James Bay Regional Government (French: Gouvernement régional d’Eeyou Istchee Baie-James, Cree: ᐄᔨᔨᐤ ᐊᔅᒌ ᒉᐃᒥᔅ ᐯᐃ ᐊᔅᒌᐤ ᑎᐹᔨᐦᒋᒑᐎᓐ iiyiyiw aychii cheimiy pei aychiiw tipaayihchichaawin) is a local municipality in the Jamésie (TE, territory equivalent to a regional county municipality), in Nord-du-Québec.
On January 1, 2014, following an accord signed on July 24, 2012 with the Cree, the government of Québec abolished the local municipality of Baie-James and created the local municipality of Eeyou Istchee James Bay.
The territory comprises all lands of Jamésie minus the four enclaved municipalities (Chibougamau, Lebel-sur-Quévillon, Chapais, and Matagami), and eight of the nine Cree communities of the Eeyou Istchee TE (Chisasibi, Eastmain, Oujé-Bougoumou, Mistissini, Nemask, Waskaganish, Waswanipin Wemindji et Wemindji; the ninth one, Whapmagoostui, is in Nunavik).
The territory includes three unconstituted localities: Radisson, Valcanton, Villebois.

Description of the flag

The flag is white with three images each showing a figure in silhouette: a face in profile against a blue background, two flying geese against a red background, and a spruce tree against a green background.

The logo of the Regional Government depicts the Territory's people, nature and culture. The three arcs reveal the outlines of a person's face, Canada geese in flight and a conifer. The colours illustrate the diversity of the Territory—the people, wildlife and vegetation that make this vast region vibrant.

First appearance of the flag in 2014:
The logo was designed by local artists Stéfanie Thompson and Stéphanie Brousseau.
