"Aloha," and "E Komo Mai," "hello," and "come on in," as said by our Hawaiian brothers and sisters. And while most of us only know Hawaii from the movies, I specifically remember it from scenes in the summer blockbuster, Jurassic Park, anyone can potentially visit and easier still, fly and wave the Hawaiian flag! The Hawaiian flag sees a Union flag of the United Kingdom in the upper left corner with eight horizontal stripes of white, red, blue representing Hawaii's eight major islands: Hawaii, Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Kahoolawe, Lanai, Molokai and Niihau.

In fact, the only U.S. state to incorporate the iconic British Union Jack, the flag of Hawaii has its own unique history tied with its familiar imagery. The likes of this date back toward the end of the 1700's when Captain George Vancouver of the British Royal Navy gifted King Kamehameha I, one of the first rulers of the Kingdom of Hawaii, a British flag. It should be noted that this version more than likely saw the red ensign or "red duster," the civil ensign of the United Kingdom. This version also more than likely didn't include the St. Patrick's cross of Ireland as it was not part of the United Kingdom yet. King Kamehameha I would fly this flag over the various places he had resided at on the islands, although the understanding of his reasoning why still remains a mystery to this day. It is theorized that King Kamehameha I either flew this out of respect for Vancouver and the friendship the two had curated or he may have merely been under the impression that Hawaii was under the protection of the British Royal Navy, which it technically was not. Nor had it been under British rule or claimed as an overseas territory.
Both British and American merchants would visit the islands during this time, leading the monarchy to fly both flags for the United Kingdom and the United States. However, the war of 1812 between the United Kingdom and the United States would motivate Hawaii to come up with their own official original flag in 1816. It looks similar to the one we see today with the Union Jack in the corner and nine stripes alternating white, red and blue. This would appear to be a clear amalgamation of both the UK and United States national flags. It also shared similarities with the British East India Trading company's flag as well, which was being used by trade ships visiting the islands during this time.
In 1845, the flag would be modified to what we see today with eight horizontal stripes representing the eight islands of Hawaii. The Kingdom of Hawaii would officially be overthrown in 1893 with the Republic of Hawaii forming in 1894. The Republic would use the same flag that would stay with Hawaii during its transition from Republic to Territory in 1898 when it was annexed by the United States to finally becoming a state flag when it was adopted as the 50th state into the union in 1959.
The Union Jack finds itself on quite the lengthy list of commonwealth nations, overseas territories, federal provinces, territories, states and even cities. To keep this fairly brief, I will list some of the more well-known flags that contain this. Australia, New Zealand, the Fiji Islands and Tuvalu, an island country in between Australia and Hawaii are all commonwealth nations with the Union Jack. Some of the overseas territories included in this list include, Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, Cayman and Cook Islands, Falkland Islands and Tristan de Cunha in the Atlantic Ocean, a set of volcanic islands known for being some of the most remote inhabited island chains in the world. Other notable places in the federal province, territory and state section that have the Union Jack are Ontario, British Columbia, Victoria, Queensland, New South Whales and Tasmania.
There is still a lot of questions in regard to the Hawaiian Kanaka Maoli flag and whether or not the claim is legitimate and should even find its way rooted into factual history. The same can also be said about the current iteration of the flag we see today. It is thought that the Kanaka Maoli flag is the one of the few original flags of Hawaii flown by King Kamehameha I. And in fact, kit is thought that it was this version and not actually the one that we know of today. The story goes that the Kanaka Maoli was destroyed in 1843 when the Kingdom was briefly taken over by British Captain Lord George Paulet. This flag sees green, red and yellow stripes with a green shield on it, the theorization of which has only surfaced in the last twenty years.
Before the English explorer Captain James Cook came to the Hawaiian Islands in 1776, the Hawaiians did not use flags. They instead displayed distinctive marks. In 1794, King Kamehameha of Hawaii was given a British flag by Captain George Vancouver. It is believed that he was the first to raise a flag in Hawaii. Until 1816, Hawaii was under British protection.
The flag was designed at the request of King Kamehameha I. It has eight stripes of white, red and blue that represent the eight main islands. The flag of Great Britain is emblazoned in the upper left corner to honor Hawaii's friendship with the British.
The flag of the state of Hawaii (Hawaiian: Ka Hae Hawaii) is the official standard symbolizing Hawaii as a U.S. state. The same flag had also previously been used by the kingdom, protectorate, republic, and territory of Hawaii. It is the only U.S. state flag to feature the Union Jack of the United Kingdom, a remnant of the period in Hawaiian history when it was associated with the British Empire.
The eight horizontal stripes of the Hawaiian flag are thought to represent the eight major Hawaiian Islands. The red stripes on the flag are thought to represent the Hawaiian deities, while the white and blue represent truth and the ocean, respectively. The Kingdom of Hawaii was the original owner of the Hawaiian flag.
The Kingdom of Hawaii was the original owner of the Hawaiian flag. Following the collapse of the monarchy, the flag first represented the Hawaiian Territory and later the Republic. In the end, it stood in for the islands of Hawaii. There used to be a ninth stripe, but after the state gained its independence, there were only eight.
Everything started in 1794 when British Captain George Vancouver gave a Union Jack flag (representing Great Britain) to King Kamehameha I as a gift. King Kamehameha needed assurance that Hawaii would be under British protection because he and Vancouver had grown close.
Even though King Kamehameha I flew the British flag for the following 22 years in a variety of Hawaiian Islands locales, the cession deal with Vancouver was never formally recognized by the British Parliament, therefore it is unknown what the monarch believed the flag to stand for.
Although it is unclear if King Kamehameha believed that the Hawaiian Islands were protected by the British, the British Union Jack can be seen in the upper left corner of the flag as a mark of respect for Captain Vancouver.
Alexander Adams is said to have been the first person to position the Union Jack in the flag's upper left corner. Adams originally arrived in the Hawaiian Islands in 1810 on the ship Albatross, and he was quickly given command of many Kamehameha-owned ships. 041b061a72
