The flag of Samoa was adopted on February 24, 1949.
The flag of Samoa consists of a red field with a blue rectangle in the canton. The blue rectangle bears the Southern Cross Constellation: four large white stars and one smaller star.
From the capture by New Zealand forces on August 29, 1914, a defaced ensign with three palm trees encircled, and emblazoned on the fly were used. The defaced Blue Ensign was used on land, and the defaced Red Ensign at sea. Wikipedia
