Nunavut Being Added To Centennial Flame

Nunavut joined the Canadian federation nearly two decades ago, but it’s only now taking its place among the other territories and provinces surrounding the Centennial Flame on Parliament Hill.

The 12-sided stone fountain at the foot of the walkway leading to the Peace Tower will have to be dismantled and reconstructed to add a 13th side and a new brass shield bearing Nunavut’s coat of arms, Nunavut’s official flower, the purple saxifrage, and 1999, the year it became a territory,

Work began this week and is expected to be completed in December

The flame at its centre has been extinguished.
