About the flag

Gamvik municipality is situated in Finnmark county.
Like Måsøy, Gamvik has found a characteristic maritime tool to emphasize the importance of fishing: The needle used to make and mend fish nets. Three of these, in yellow colour, are set diagonally on a red field. The flag was approved by Royal resolution dated 28 September 1990. As for the illustration, to fill the field, I made the middle needle larger than the two on the sides.
Jan Oskar Engene, 29 April 2002

I drew it again as 1:1 variant and 5:11. Administrative center is Mehamn.
