Merizo Flag, Municipality of the US Territory of Guam (Guahan)

Merizo is one of nineteen municipalities on the U.S. Territory of Guam. The Merizo flag is themed in a cultural depiction of legends and iconic symbols of this southern village. So much history is found in this sleepy village where many tourists flock to visit. The flag represents many iconic symbols including the Santa Marian Kamalin – a Catholic icon, the Spanish bell towers, latte stones, the Merizo pier, a flying proa, a fisherman and his talaya, as well as the village flower (orange hibiscus) which all grace the center logo, with a roped circular design depicting this village’s marine activities found in this village including boating, fishing, water sports and much more.
