Approved on 27 June 1986.
Gamvik municipality is situated in Finnmark county.
Like Måsøy, Gamvik has found a characteristic
maritime tool to emphasize the importance of fishing: The needle used to make
and mend fish nets. Three of these, in yellow colour, are set diagonally on a
red field. The flag was approved by Royal resolution dated 28 September 1990. As
for the illustration, to fill the field, I made the middle needle larger than
the two on the sides.
