Flag colour meaning[edit]

I am doing a presentation... and I have been searching the internet for like every to know what the colors of the Samoa flag stand for! That includes the white, red coloring, the blue coloring, and what do the stars represent? I was told it represents 5 islands in Upolu... but now I'm not sure because someone else told me it is a map of how Samoa used to be before the islands split... ask me about that there, I have no idea... but I'm leaning more to the "it represents 5 islands in Upolu."

GiNNy

Its just the southern cross. nothing more, look at australia for example.

Earlier flag[edit]

The flag of German Samoa was not the first Samoan flag. In the 19th century, a nominally independent Samoan kingdom was recognised by Germany, the UK and the US. There was a Samoan flag by 1873, described as "a red flag with a white star". (see mention here, p.20) Aridd (talk) 19:51, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

NZ occupation[edit]

Samoa was under NZ military occupation, not "the control of NZ-forces".Royalcourtier (talk) 06:00, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
