An image of the flag of the Ta'an Kwach'an Council, Yukon, Canada, from their
winter 2017-2018 newsletter,
The newsletter also records:
The Ta’an Kwäch’än Council flag is making an impression above Whitehorse. The logo and flag were created around the time of settlement of land claims. “We needed a flag for representation of TKC,” says Elder Ruth Massie, who was general manager of Mundessa Corporation at that time. Sometime about the 1998, the logo and flag came into being, possibly for use in Ottawa. The blue in the forefront represents the water of Taa’an Män, Lake Laberge. The mountains in the background where were the people hunted. The flowers represented those used in beading moccasins. In the foreground, representations of the two moieties, wolf and crow, face each other. You may have noticed the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council flag around town over the last few years.
Whitehorse City Hall uses flags to announce special events, such as Aboriginal Day, which was named a territorial holiday in 2017. Mayor Curtis, members of City Council and senior management honoured and recognized Ta’an Kwäch’än Council jurisdiction within the City of Whitehorse by raising the TKC flag for June 21, 2017.
The newsletter also carries the band seal which I applied to a white 1:2 field to make the flag.
