Yona's flag sports a beautiful village snapshot. It displays a motif of green to reflect its natural greenery of its trees, bushes, and grasses; and golden yellow to depict its morning sunshine welcoming the village. The center inset represents Tagachang Beach, a hidden beach with rocky outcrops and white sands. In the background, it displays the sun rising in the east. In the foreground, pink bougainvillea (Yona's village flower) is displayed in all its glory. The flag sports three stripes, golden yellow for the abundance of sunshine (also represented in a lighter yellow), the blue for its expansive Pacific Ocean, and green for the flora throughout the village.
This flag was designed by Gerard V. Aflague, a Guam born native, in collaboration with the mayor and his staff. Reproduction of this image is allowed without license.
