Unequal triband of dark blue, white and dark blue charged on the white area with a local badge. This consists of the contour of a lying ellipse intersected with a rectangle at the base, upon which there is a canoe scene featuring a river and a mountain skyline behind and above a pair of crossed snow shoes and an animal fur. Arched above it, the lettering "- Hamlet of -" and bellow, in a straight line, "Fort Liard N.W.T.".
Fort Liard, with a population of 512 (as of 1996), was formerly called by the traditional name of Echaot'l Koe (meaning "people from the land of the giants") and is located at 60°15'N lat. and 123°28'W long., on the extreme SW corner of NWT. Local languages are South Slavey and English, and the community belongs to the electoral district of Nahendeh and to the land claim area of Deh Cho Treaty 11.
