In the middle of the blue field is the country’s coat of arms which is oval in shape. The coat of arms features a canoe sailing in Agana Bay near Hagatna; a coconut palm silhouetted against Two Lover's Point in Tumon Bay; and the name of the country, GUAM in red letters.
The oval shape of the ensign refers to the ancient Chamorro sling stones that were used on the island. In 1930, the oval design was officially made the Great Seal of the Territory of Guam. The colors and the design of the Guam Flag have been borrowed from the United States flag.
The Guam Flag was officially accepted by the Guam Congress on February 9, 1948.
