"Samoa, Let God Be First"
The Seal of the Territory of American Samoa is based in traditional local design. 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”.
