Replete in red, white and blue, the flag was originally commissioned by King Kamehameha I in 1816. The king's close ties to Great Britain are reflected in the design, which features elements of the Union Jack as well as the Kingdom of Hawai'i. The eight horizontal stripes represent the eight major islands in the chain.
In 1794, Kamehameha united Hawai‘i island as one kingdom and ceded Hawai‘i as a protectorate under King George III. He was gifted a British flag by Captain George Vancouver and proudly flew that flag at his residence, Kamakahonu, and adopted it as Hawai‘i’s national flag for more than two decades.
