The Samoan flag was adopted in 1962 when it became independent of New Zealand. It bears the Southern Cross in its canton to represent its geographical position in the Southern hemisphere as well as the country’s connection to New Zealand. This flag’s red base stands for courage. The blue canton represents freedom, and the white of the stars symbolizes purity.
This flag is dyed on silky, lustrous rayon and is hemmed and mounted to a 10 in. black pole that includes a gold-painted spear. Base not included.
