Talofofo Village Flag, Municipality in the US Territory of Guam

Talofofo, is one of nineteen municipalities on the U.S. Territory of Guam. The theme as illustrated on the Talofofo flag design depicts the many aspects the village is known for. It’s sunrise over the eastern Guam horizon welcomes the never-ending waterfall which symbolizes the life giving properties to the village. With the Talofofo Bay as the focal point of this logo, it highlights the surfing activity and its brown sand, which this bay is known for. Coconut trees grace the foreground that provide the natural beauty. Birds fly over making their way to and fro, while a variety of fruits and vegetables grace the lower foreground which is a testament to the fertile land that God has blessed this village with, in providing sustenance for the many villagers of island. The flag reads “Official Seal of the Municipality of Talofofo, Guam USA”, displaying its village flower, the bougainvillea, to the right and left of the logo inset. The flag’s color yellow and the prominent banana tree, represents the annual banana festival held in their village, while the green represents the many flora that the village has to offer its people.
