Qaqortoq is a town in the South Greenland, in the Landsdele of
Kitaa (West Greenland). Its name in Danish is Julianehab, its
official name is "Qaqortoq Kommunia". The site where
you can have information about the place, is <www.qaqortoq.gl>. The banner
is blue and white, with a white ancor joined to a white balance,
with blue scale pans.

show only coat of arms but no flag. Therefore, this reported flag
probably don't exist (yet?). For information about the Coat of
Arms, see <www.ngw.nl>.

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). Qaqortoq is one of them.
