Flag ribbons need to be made again, 1893 / Today.


When the Editor of the Hawaii Holomua saw the Beautiful Flag of Hawaii being raised once again above Aliiolani Hale, he was quick with tiny Hawaiian Flags printed on silk ribbons to place upon the chest, and there were a scattering this past Saturday, but today, there were a great number on people who have aloha for their Ruler, their Lahui, and their Aina. This marvelous badge of our homeland can be gotten from the hands of our Secretary, Mr. Thomas K. Nakanaela. Every man, woman, and child should place this badge upon their chest, not to be contemptuous of other flags, but to be steadfast in your aloha and affection.

(Hawaii Holomua, 4/3/1893, p. 2)
