Flag of Samoa 🇼🇸

Flag of Samoa

The flag of Samoa 🇼🇸, which has been adopted in a slightly different form in 1948, is composed of a red sheet with a blue rectangle located on the pole side of the flag stretching to the half of the flag. The rectangle bears five white stars of different sizes, which are reminiscent of the Southern Cross constellation which dominates the night sky in this area. The original flag which was adopted in 1948 contained only four stars, their number was, however, later increased to today´s five. The red color of the leaf refers to the blood shed during the struggle for independence from Germany, which Samoa reached in 1962. The blue color symbolizes unity and justice and the white stands for purity and chastity.
