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). Ivittuut is one of them.

I propose the following blason: Per fess azure and argent, two
fox guardant passant and counter-passant (or however this is
blazoned in English).
