Hawaii State Flags
The Hawaii State flag honors “the Aloha State’s” unique relationship with the United States and Great Britain. Hawaii is the only U.S. state flag to feature the Union Jack, the flag of the United Kingdom. The Hawaii flag was commissioned in 1816 at the request of the first king to unite the eight major Hawaiian Islands. Stories speculate that the flag was meant as a symbol to appease both British and American interests during the War of 1812 (which pitted the United States against Great Britain). The Hawaii flag consists of eight stripes of white, red and blue with each stripe representing a major island. The red stripes are said to symbolize Hawaii’s god, the white stripes represent truth and the blue stripes signify the ocean. The Union Jack rests in the upper left corner. Hawaii was the 50th state admitted to the union on August 21, 1959.
