73rd Liberation Theme: Strength in Unity
Chamorro Translation: Manmetgot gi Dinanña’
Almost every culture has a similar proverb or saying. “Sticking together is a source of strength” often used in referring to teams, families, marriages, communities, and nations. This proverb suggests, moreover, that we are stronger together than when we are alone. The principle of the theme is the primary basis of peace and happiness of a society and a nation. Unity brings greater safety and security. This is the history of the formation of all nations.
Logo design/concept: Set in the shape of an åcho’ atupat (slingstone), the raised fist, or the clenched fist, is a symbol of solidarity and support used as a salute to express unity and strength. Set in the fist is the image of Guam Seal- the flag of our people. The backdrop to the fist is the stars and stripes of the United States of America which recognizes the pride and patriotism instilled in the people and the relief they felt upon seeing the red, white and blue flowing freely over our liberated island.
