Flag Day (American Samoa)

Flag Day is a public holiday in American Samoa, and it is observed on April 17. The holiday commemorates the anniversary when the flag of American Samoa was adopted on this day in 1960.

American Samoa is an unincorporated territory of the United States located in the South Pacific Ocean, and it consists of five main islands and two coral atolls. Europeans first arrived on the Samoan Islands in the early 18th century, which were divided by three countries: Great Britain, Germany and the United States during the Tripartite Convention in 1899.

The United States took control over easternmost Samoa on April 17, 1900. In the middle of 20th century, Samoans started to design a territorial flag, which was officially adopted on April 17, 1960.

The flag of American Samoa consists two dark blue upper and lower triangles and one red-edged white triangle with a bald eagle clutching a war club and fly-whisk.
