AMERICAN SAMOA (Amerika Sāmoa / Sāmoa Amelika)
American Samoa does not uses arms, but only the above seal.
The fue or the fly switch, represents wisdom, while the To'oto'o or staff represents authority. Both symbols are used by talking chiefs indicating their rank. The Tanoa (kava bowl) represents service to the chief.
The Samoan motto Samoa Muamua Le Atua is translated “Samoa, Let God Be First”.
Arms of towns and villages
As far as I know, no towns or village on the island uses arms.Literature:
