The only place in the world where trees and polar bears coexist. Churchill.
The Churchill region is the only place in the world where polar bears and trees can be observed in the same frame. All other regions that have polar bear populations are above the Arctic tree line.
The flag tree is a suitable symbol for the harsh climate found at the edge of the Arctic. The tree is shaped by its environment and the windward facing limbs are deformed, stunted or killed by the relentless north wind coming off Hudson Bay. This tree is a white spruce and its appearance is characteristic of the Churchill Region.
