Territorial Floral Emblem
The Floral Emblem was adopted by the Council of the Northwest Territories when it enacted the Floral Emblem Ordinance in June 1957.
The Mountain Avens (Dryas octopetala) has narrow basal leaves and supports a single white and yellow flower on a short stem. This member of the rose family grows abundantly in the eastern and central Arctic, as well as in parts of the Mackenzie region. It is found in open and well-drained areas, especially on high or rocky ground.
