The flag of Yukon is a green, white, and blue tricolour with the coat of arms of Yukon at the centre above a wreath of fireweed, the territorial flower. An official flag for Yukon was created during the 1960s, a decade in which the national flag of Canada was chosen as well as several other provincial flags were created.

The flag was selected from a territory-wide design competition in 1967, with a total of 137 submissions. The winning design, submitted by Yukon College graduate Lynn Lambert, was officially adopted on March 1, 1968.

The flag is divided into three coloured panels of green, white, and blue, representing Yukon's forests, snow, and lakes and rivers respectively. The crest of the coat of arms is a Malamute sled dog, a common work dog in the Yukon, standing on a mound of snow. The shield of the Coat of Arms contains the St George's Cross for England, with a roundel with a pattern of vair (fur), called Roundel in Vair, in chief. Below in the middle of the shield are two vertical wavy lines, representing Yukon's rivers, on a blue background. Finally at the bottom of the shield are two red triangles, representing the territory's mountains, with gold circles in them, representing the great mineral resources.
