The islands Franz Joseph Land (Zemlâ Franca-Ĭosifa | Земля Франца-Йосифа) and New Land (Novaâ Zemlâ | Новая Земля) are part of Arkhagelsk Region, but not part of Nenetsia (which is an autonomous district dependent also from Arkhagelsk Region, and the mainland opposite to all of them). Other nearby islands, Kolguev and Baygach (Baĭgaĉ) — smaller and closer to the shore —, do belong to Nentsia. According to my newer Russian atlases, all these islands are (very sparsely) inhabited exclusively by russians, except for New Land, that harbours a small nentsi community in its southern tip. Any local flags would be town flags (that may exist, but I doubt that it is a priorily for local leaders).
