Lloyd Stowell Shapley[1] (November 3, 1875 – August 16, 1969) was a United States Navy Captain who served as the 32nd Naval Governor of Guam. Shapley served as governor from April 7, 1926 to June 11, 1929.[2]

He was born in Lebanon, New York. As governor, he pushed for the Navy to approve a Flag of Guam; he succeeded in gaining approval in 1929, though the design changed 19 years later.[3] The flag consisted of a blue field with a central red-lined figure containing a Guamanian sling stone.[4] During his time in office, he had already retired from Naval service.[5] He died in Alameda County, California.
