Flag of American Samoa Date Flag first adopted: April 24th, 1960
Description: blue, with a white triangle edged in red that is based on the fly side and extends to the hoist
side; a brown and white American bald eagle flying toward the hoist side is carrying two traditional Samoan
symbols of authority, a war club known as a "Fa'alaufa'i" (upper; left talon), and a coconut fiber fly whisk
known as a "Fue" (lower; right talon); the combination of symbols broadly mimics that seen on the US Great Seal
and reflects the relationship between the United States and American Samoa.
