The Asan-Maina flag design depicts the relaxed lifestyle of the village, among other things. The design depicts the Asan Memorial War Park, where many island visitors and locals alike make their way to enjoy a stroll in the park, ride bikes, catch some wind and waves in the ocean, and play in the grass. The park, a nationally recognized war park, boasts many coconut trees that make it a picturesque setting, especially when silhouettes are created by Guam's beautiful setting sun. It is also host to many annual events including an Easter egg hunt and a kite flying festival. The flag design bottom center inset displays the village flower, the Plumeria. The flag includes two stars representing Asan and Maina villages. The red stripes represent the blood that was shed on the shores of Asan beach during World War II by American soldiers and by the Chamorro people of Guam who were injured and died.
This flag was designed by Gerard V. Aflague, a Guam born native, in collaboration with the mayor and his staff. Reproduction of this image is allowed without license.
