The flag of American Samoa consists of a white triangle with a red border pointing towards the hoist side of the flag, inside which sits a bald eagle holding a war club and fly-whisk on the fly side of the flag. The remainder of the flag outside the triangle is navy blue. This flag was adopted on 17 April 1960 and has been the official flag of the Territory of American Samoa ever since. The colours of the flag reflect the colours of both the Samoan flag and the flag of the United States of America. The bald eagle symbolises the national bird of the United States of America whilst the war club and fly-whisk it carries are traditional Samoan symbols.
The American Samoa flag's ratio is 10:19. The flag was designed by Fareti Sotoa, a high school student who won a flag design competition.
