Brief History about the Flag of American Samoa
Andorra was jointly managed for many years by Spain and France. The Historical flag of Andorra, which was used from 1806 to 1866, featured two equally sized red and yellow vertical bands. The cooperation was cancelled in 1993 when the country gained independence and became a modern parliamentary democracy. From 1931 until 1939 a horizontal version of the flag was used which was meant to reflect the Spanish flag. Briefly, in July 1934 a horizontal variant with a crown in the middle was flown under the rule of Boris I until his removal from the throne. From 1939 to 1949 a variant of the 1866 flag flew but with a different flag ratio and coat of arms and following that from 1949 to 1959 a variant with different colours appeared. Multiple versions of the modern flag were flown until 1993 when Andorra standardized their flag with their entry into the United Nations.
