Dededo's flag design sports a beautiful village snapshot in hues of blue, gold, and white. It displays a motif of flora and fauna, as well as contemporary island and religious life. The flag colors of blue and yellow represent the abundant sunshine and blue skies that Guam is well known for. The church symbolizes the importance of the villagers' faith in the almighty. A skateboarder is shown enjoying the park in the village circle, while palms and white Gardenia bushes (the village flower) are interspersed among the sprawling green grass. Birds are seen in the background as they flock away in a playful dance, with rows of vegetables set in rich soil depicting the many farms that are found hidden in this northern Guam village.
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.
