Product Description

The Hawaiian Islands were originally each ruled separately by their own King. The islands were very peaceful and the Hawaiian people were of a practical nature. In 1810 Aliƒ??i Kamehameha a native, brought his boat, with included cannon, to other islands in the chain. He began to take control of the islands one by one. He instituted a government, commerce and taxation while establishing a court to run the Hawaiian Islands. Kamehameha first commissioned a flag for Hawaii in 1816. This state flag represented the Hawaiian nation and its people. Hawaiiƒ??s independence was challenged by Lord Paulette in 1843, but was officially restored the same year. The flag however was not officially recognized again at this time. On July 31, 1843 Kamehameha III declared ƒ??Ua mau ke o ka ƒ??aina i ka pono.ƒ? (The life [Independence] of the land perpetuated in righteousness.) Two years later he rededicated the flag of Hawaii. The flag offers eight stripes to represent the eight islands of Hawaii. These stripes alternate red, white, and blue. The?ÿBritish Union Jack?ÿis in the upper left corner to show Hawaiiƒ??s historicl relationship with Great Britian. This also shows a symbol of Hawaiian aliƒ??I through a puela or a triangular standard laying across two crossed spears. CVS Flags
