Santa Rita Flag, Municipality of the US Territory of Guam (Guahan)

Santa Rita is one of nineteen municipalities on the U.S. Territory of Guam. Santa Rita’s flag sports beautiful images of the village. The colors red and blue represent the blood shed by the local people of Sumay during World War II at the caves in Fena, while the blue represents the tears shed by the thousands who mourned their loss. The brown circle logo represents the people themselves, and the many resources that have been used over the thousands of years as part of their living. The logo inset reads “Don’t forget us, the people of Sumay” referring to the sufferings of many people during World War II in the Pacific. In addition, it was Sumay village that was the first to be attacked by the Japanese forces. The inset contains several village landmarks including Namu Falls, St. Guadalupe Church, the hills of Santa Rita, latte stone that identifies the foundation by which the people built the village, and the village flower, the white gardenia.
