3,050 flags represent the U.S. Military personnel and Chamorros and Guamanians who died during WWII.

Guam – Thousands of flags decorate the Asan Beach lawn this Memorial Day.

The commemorative flag display is an annual tradition of the National Park Service and volunteers. Each one of the more than three thousand united states and Guam flags represents someone who died during Japanese occupation or the battle to liberate the island in World War II. The flags have been on display since Saturday morning. If you haven’t had a chance to go down to Asan Beach yet this Memorial Day there is still time. The flags have been lit up this year to allow the public to enjoy them at any time of the day.
