There is no information about a flag of Sisimiut. Municipal
homepage at <www.sisimiut.gl>.

Aachen's 1982 book [ach82], as
quoted in <www.ngw.nl>,
says that the arms were granted in 1971.

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). Sisimiut is one of them.
