Guam Flag Day

July 4th is Independence Day in the United States but did you know that July 4th is also a significant day in Guam history? It’s the anniversary of the day Guam got its own flag. Before we had a flag, the flag of Spain was raised over Guam until 1898, followed by the U.S. flag. The “Plan of Guam Flag” was approved 100 years ago on July 4, 1917 and the Guam flag made its first appearance two days later. The Guam flag was officially raised over the island a year later on July 4, 1918.

Happy 100th Birthday to the Guam Flag! 🇬🇺
