The Hawaiian Flag at this time is the Flag of the Monarchy, from times long ago; it is not the Flag of the Republic of Hawaii. That Flag is placed below the Palace; it is a Flag with a single star.

They despise all symbols relating to the Monarchy, and therefore all of the Hawaiian crowns affixed to the gates of the Palace have been removed, and the printing of the image of the crown has been discarded from all government notices; and this is how they attempt through all means to erase all of the streets and squares; they changed Palace Square [Kuea Alii] to Union Square [Union Square] and the Palace [Halealii] to the Executive Building [Hale Hooko], and so forth.

However, as for the Hawaiian Flag, it will prevail, yesterday, today, and for all times. The Hawaiian Flag of the Monarchy is what was saluted to by the warships this past Wednesday.

[Let us not deny the Hawaiian Flag for newly fashioned ones. May it indeed prevail for all times. E welo mau ka Hae Hawaii!]
