Since 1916, Flag Day has been commemorated in the United States. On Flag Day June 14, 2022, the National Museum of American History hosted a ceremony to honor the raising of four flags belonging to the Unincorporated Territories of the United States: American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and the Virgin Islands of the United States.

The flags were added to those that fly across the building’s façade on the terrace and are integral to the museum’s design, emphasizing political unity and the museum’s role in telling the complicated story of American history. The nation’s flagship history museum is the home of the Star-Spangled Banner, the flag that inspired the words to what became the national anthem.

Among those in attendance were Anthea M. Hartig, Director of the National Museum of American History, Representatives from American Samoa (Attorney General Fainuulelei Falefatu Alailima Utu and Governors Representative Aoelua Solomona Aoelua), Guam, the Commonwealth of the Mariana Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Smithsonian Ceremonial Honor Guard.


"We will never forget the sacrifices our Toa o Samoa have paid so that we may enjoy the freedom we have today."
