Horizontally banded light blue - green - light blue, the uppermost stripe narrower, and five curved figures overall, grading in colour from brown through ochre to tan.
The flag is described at http://ropergulf.nt.gov.au/our-councils-story/, from which is extracted:
The logo was developed from a concept created by Lainie Joy of Borroloola. The five flowing figures have multiple meanings. They represent the five wards in our Roper Gulf Region (Never Never, Numbulwar, Nyirranggulung, South West Gulf and Yugul Mangi), the five main rivers winding through our region (the Limmen, McArthur, Robinson, Roper and Rose Rivers), the low-lying hills that are visible on the horizon nearly everywhere in the Region and the Rainbow Serpent that underlies everything. The colours are based on the different colours of the soils and the peoples co-existing in the Roper Gulf Region.
