Ammassalik is located in the territory of Tunu (East Greenland), on the coast of the Denmark Strait. Its municipality, which official name is "Ammassalip Kommunia", includes the villages of Kuummiut, Kulusuk, Tineteqilaaq, Sermiligaaq, Isertoq, Ikatteq and Qernertuarsuit. I copied the blazon from the seal at <>: it is a shield on a white field, with a white superior part and blue inferior part. In the shield there are three fish, white and blue, placed vertically.

Photos at <> show only coat of arms but no flag. Therefore, this reported flag probably don't exist (yet?). For information about the Coat of Arms, see <>. Tasiilaq is the main town of this community.

The arms are per fess argent and azure three herrings hauriant countercharged. Azure is, as usual in Greenland flags, depicted as very light blue.
