Dalhousie University permanently raised the Mi’kmaq Santé Mawiómi flag, sometimes referred to as the Grand Council flag, as a gesture that the university recognizes that it is located on ‘traditional territory of the Mi’kmaq people’. There are differences of opinion on whether the flag should be flown vertically or horizontally. The meaning in the design of the flag:
Wapék (White) — Denotes the purity of Creation
Mekwék Klujjewey (Red Cross) — Represents mankind
and infinity (four directions)
Nákúset (Sun) — Forces of the day
Tepkunaset (Moon) — Forces of the night
