The flag of the United States territory of Guam was adopted on February 9, 1948. The territorial flag is dark blue with a narrow red border on all sides (border was a later addition). The red border represents the blood spilled in World War II and Spanish sovereignty. In the center of the flag is the seal; an almond-shaped emblem, which depicts a proa sailing in Hagåtña Bay near Hagåtña, and GUAM colored in red letters. The shape of the emblem recalls the slingshot stones used by ancient Chamoru people. The landform in the background depicts the Two Lovers Point cliff on Guam.
Fully sewn flags are made with poly woven fabric, which is also referred to as woven "bunting", they are appliquéd, using layers of fabric and custom stitching to make the artwork. Long-lasting, durable, as well as the most elegant and undoubtedly a keepsake item. These are made using the traditional methods of flag making.
Printed on a poly woven fabric similar to the fully sewn flags just a less denier for the ink to penetrate through the fabric, this makes them suitable for indoor and outdoor use, this is the most durable and traditional of the printed flags. These are either screen printed or digitally printed. Digitally printed can be printed on a lightweight satin or a poly knitted fabric, a cost-effective option.
All flags are and finished with double stitched hems with UV stable header tape and UV stable recycled thread. All flags unless specified otherwise are finished with sister clips, other finishes are available such as sleeves for poles, or loop and tail etc, if you require these please put the finish you would like in the notes when you view your cart.
