  3. Have you seen the Hawaiian Flag as it was flying over FORT KEKUANAHU (Fort of Honolulu) with the Union Flag of the United Kingdom as an ‘X’ not its normal ‘+’ as painted by Paul Emmert c.1853 ? The original painting is located on the wall in the Archive Office of the Mission House Museum on King Street, Honolulu, O’ahu, Hawai’i.
