I recently researched municipal flags in Greenland by correspondence with municipal authorities in Greenland. The results have just been published in the Fall 2005 issue of Nordisk Flaggkontakt, the journal of the Nordic Flag Society [joe05].
I managed to get confirmation from 15 of 18 municipalities all using the same flag model - the coat of arms on a white field (the colour white carries no symbolism). Ivittuut is one of them.

Coat of Arms

I propose the following blason: Per fess azure and argent, two fox guardant passant and counter-passant (or however this is blazoned in English).
