Flag of Guam
The flag of Guam was adopted on February 9, 1948. The territorial flag is dark blue with a narrow red border on all sides (border was a later addition). In the center of the flag is the coat of arms; an almond shaped emblem, which depicts a proa sailing in Agana Bay near Hagåtña, and GUAM colored in red letters. The shape of the emblem recalls the slingshot stones used by the islanders' ancestors. The landform at the back depicts the Puntan Dos Amantes cliff on Guam.
The length of the flag is forty inches and the width is seventy-eight inches. Around each side of the flag, there is a two inch red border. The coat of arms in the center is twenty-four inches tall and sixteen inches wide.
