Guam - The Mayors Council of Guam unveiled its latest project. Tamuning Vice Mayor Louise Rivera is leading the effort and says each village mayor for the past several months has been tasked to design a flag that best represents their village. Sinajana Vice Mayor Robert Hofmann includes images of what each village is best known for.

She said, "We all decided to have flags made and stating We Are Guam, We Are Tamuning, Tumon and Harmon logo and, of course, the symbol the new symbol of Guam showing the Guam brand...we want our residents to fully partake in the design of it so its something that they can own and cherish for the rest, always represent that specific village."

Rivera says the only design that they are waiting for is from Yigo. While some mayors like Agana Heights Mayor Paul McDonald plan on changing the design of their flags, he does say he is satisfied with the design he has so far. "Right now we have some churches, actually we have a lot of churches, we have the First Baptist Church, the First Seventh-Day Adventist Church, our Catholic church, then we have the friary in the background," he said.
