I wonder if any of these golden Hawaiian flag badges still survive, 1893.

GOLDEN HAWAIIAN FLAGS.

We saw beautiful new Golden Hawaiian Flags at the jewelry store of Mr. T. Linday [Lindsay], on Fort Street, upland of the store of Mr. McInerny [Mr. Makinane]. It is most beautiful and reasonable in price. O those of Patriotic hearts, you must go get one at once, lest they run out first, for there are not many.

One thought on “I wonder if any of these golden Hawaiian flag badges still survive, 1893.

  1. The ad in English says these were made of gold and enamel, which means that probably some have survived. It wouldn’t be easy to identify them specifically, though, since there’s a fair amount of Hawaiian jewelry from this time period.
