HAWAII FLAG MEANING & HISTORY
The story goes that 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 it, including ones with stripes on them, much like the modern flag. To please both the British and the United States, the King designed a flag with both elements of the British flag and American flag.
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 at eight white, red, and blue horizontal stripes and includes the Union flag of the United Kingdom as a testament to the history shared between Hawaii and the U.K. 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 of “hah-wy-ee.”
