(imageobtained from https://flagsofguam.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/agat_flag_b.png and article at https://flagsofguam.wordpress.com/2011/05/25/agat-flag/):
Agat is also known as Hagat by Guam's natives. Agat's flag sports beautiful images of the village set in the colors of blue, green, and yellow. These colors represent the flora of the village, the plentiful sunshine, and clear waters and skies. Silhouettes of birds off-shore, and a military ship in the background display the activity that is commonplace for villagers to see. A basket of mangoes with an abundant harvest is displayed symbolizing the bountiful and giving nature of its rich soil as well as the mango festival held in their village annually. Many yellow Hibiscus flowers symbolize the official village flower displayed in the foreground which highlights the old Spanish bridge which was an historic route to the capital city of Hagatna, Guam.
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.
