    Hawaii State Flag history

    King Kamehameha I united the islands into a single entity and used the Union Jack (British flag) until 1816. That year, to be seen as an ally to both USA and Great Britain, red, white, and blue stripes were added the Union Jack to create a distinctive national flag for Hawaii. King Kamehameha III standardized the number of stripes on the national flag to eight, symbolizing the eight major islands (Hawaiʻi, Oʻahu, Kauaʻi, Kahoʻolawe, Lānaʻi, Maui, Molokaʻi and Niʻihau). Hawaii became a U.S. territory on August 12, 1898 and a state in the union on August 21, 1959, but continued to use the same flag it used as a nation.
