Neh gaaw saga'igan is the local translation of Sandy Lake. The name
Wabitiquayang, which refers to the short narrow river between Sandy Lake and
Finger Lake, was used in the mid 1900's. Sandy Lake is a remote, fly-in First
Nation community located in the boreal forested area of Northwestern Ontario
along the Severn River. Sandy Lake is 450 km northeast of Winnipeg, Manitoba and
600 km northwest of Thunder Bay, Ontario.
The flag is a Canadian pale blue-white-blue with a wheel-like arrangement of feathers and crossed pipes inside a red ring which bears the name.
