American Samoa Flag Day

On April 17, 1900 American Samoa became a U.S. Territory. The American Samoa Flag Day celebration marks the raising of the American Flag over Pago Pago by Captain B.F. Tilley of the Navy on Sogelau Hill.

The historic site has since been abandoned and much of the hill was cut away and used as landfill to expand the Naval Station. In 1997 the American Samoa Historic Preservation Office identified what remained of the original site, and it was restored in 2000 in a partnership between the ASHPO, the American Samoan Government, and the Boy Scouts of America Eagle Scout.
