According to tradition, King Kamehameha designed the Hawai'ian flag as it is known today in the early 1800s following prosperous trade meetings with Great Britain.

Kamehameha was gifted several flags with the British Union Jack on them, including ones with stripes, much like the modern flag of Hawaii design. To please the British and the United States, the King designed a flag with elements of the British and American flags.

Like the British East India Company's flag, Kamehameha's flag was used as the unofficial flag of the Hawaiian Kingdom from its design in 1816 until 1845, when it was officially adopted. Its pattern was standardized as eight white, red, and blue horizontal stripes. It includes the Union Jack flag of the United Kingdom as a testament to the history shared between Hawaii and the UK. This makes Hawaii the only US state to have a state flag with a Union Jack on it. The eight stripes signify the eight major Hawaiian islands: Hawai'i, Maui, Kahoʻolawe, Lānaʻi, Molokaʻi, Oʻahu, Kauaʻi, and Niʻihau.

Unlike the widely popularized pronunciation of “hah-wy-ee,” the correct pronunciation of the state of “Hawai'i” is pronounced “hah-vy-ee” instead.
