Flag of American Samoa


The national flag of American Samoa, the unincorporated territory of the United States became official on April 24, 1960, the day the first constitution of American Samoa went into effect. Also this day marked the sixtieth anniversary of the first hoisting of the U.S. flag in Samoa.
The American Samoa flag has a white triangle in the middle with blue as the background color. The white triangle shows an American bald eagle flying facing the hoist side. The eagle represents the nation's relationship with the United States. Also the eagle holds traditional symbols of power among Samoan chiefs in its claws: a fly whisk (fue) and a war club (uatogi). The former symbolizes the wisdom of Samoa's traditional chiefs, and the latter represents the power of the state.

The ratio of the flag is 1:2.
