    Best in Guam. Guam . Guam information, On February 9, 1948, the flag of the island of Guam was adopted. Guam’s seal appears at the middle of the flag, which represents a proa (a seagoing craft built by the Chamorro people) sailing in Agana Bay near Hagatna and a palm tree. This palm tree, which is also known as the “Tree of Life”, carries a superior place among Guam’s symbol. The picture of the tree growing on infertile sand represents determination and self-sustenance to grow and survive under any situation, with its leaves open to the sky and withstanding the elements to move its will. The almond shape of the seal echoes the slingshot stones used by the islanders’ ancestors (Chamorro) as a weapon for hunting and warfare. This slingshot stone symbolizes endurance and protection. The said seal was approved by Charles Alan Pownall in 1948. Since Guam is a part of United States territory, the color scheme of its flag is in line with the “Stars and Stripes” of the US flag. The Guam flag is a dark blue base with red borders on all sides, which was a later addition. These red borders recall the blood that was shed by the island’s people. The “Two Lover’s Point” at the background should not be forgotten. This portrays the love and faithful commitment of the islanders to pass on their language, heritage and rich culture to their future generations.
