FLAG DESCRIPTION / HISTORY
Year Adopted: 1948 current version (origins from 1917)
The  Guam flag is dark blue with a narrow red border on all four sides; centered is a red-bordered, pointed, vertical ellipse containing a beach scene, a proa or outrigger canoe with sail, and a palm tree with the word GUAM superimposed in bold red letters. The proa is sailing in Agana Bay with the promontory of Punta Dos Amantes, near the capital, in the background. Blue represents the sea and red the blood shed in the struggle against oppression.

Guam is an unorganized incorporated Territory of the United States located between the Hawaiian Islands and the Philippines. It was acquired from Spain by Treaty in 1898. Guam was captured by the Japanese in 1941, and retaken by the US three years later. The military installation on the island is one of the most strategically important US bases in the Pacific. The Territory is under the adminstrative jurisdiction of the Department of the Interior.(ref: CIA World Factbook, Jan. 2014)

Guam flag coat of arms The Coat of Arms / Seal; adopted 1930. The shape of the seal is that of a Chamorro sling stone used as a weapon for warfare and hunting. The sling stone was quarried from basalt and coral. The Coconut Tree, growing in unfertile sand, symbolizes self-sustanance and determination to grow and survive under any circumstance, with its fronds open to the sky -- defies the elements to bend its will. Its bent trunk attests to a people which have been tested by famine, natural calamities, genocide and foreign wars but have continued to endure as a race. The Flying Proa, a seagoing craft built by the Chamorro people, which was fast and agile in the water required great skill to build and sail. ................. The original River channel ...symbolizes a willingness to share the resources of the land with others. The permanence of the land mass of Urunao (Ulu Enao) in the background (Rogers, Robert. Destiny's Landfall. 1995 Univ of Hawaii Press. pg 142) demonstrates the Chamorro's commitment to their homeland and environment, be it sea or land.....GUAM or GUAHAN means "we have" (see *notes below) is the home ("Tano Y Chamoru") of the Chamoru people. A red stripe surrounding the Guam Seal representing the blood shed by its people during World War II and Spanish occupation. A field of Blue represents Guam's unity with the sea and sky. *Notes on the word Guahan according to Leonard Iriarte: guaha = to have / gua + ha or gua + han = a person, place, thing, or time of having; or that has / guahan = a place that has value.
