The 2012 Flag Day will be dedicated to Gov. Togiola Tulafono, who will deliver his last Flag Day address in this year’s two-day event set for Apr. 17 and 18 at the Veterans Memorial Stadium. The governor’s address will occur at the Flag Day opening on Apr. 17, along with the flag raising and parade.
In an Apr. 9 general memorandum, Togiola declared the two days to be observed as Flag Day holidays in American Samoa and all local government offices will be closed and all normal activities will be suspended on those days.
