Description of royal standards of Likelike, Kaiulani, and Liliuokalani, 1885.

[Found under: “LOCAL AND GENERAL.”]

The new flag presented to H. R. H. Princess Likelike by his Majesty the King was floating from the mainmast of the steamer W. G. Hall as she came into port Tuesday afternoon. It is red and white stripes with the Hawaiian coat of arms and crown in the centre, and is very pretty. The one for the little Princess Kaiulani was hoisted at a luau held the same afternoon at Waikiki. It is red with a white centre on which is the coat of arms and crown. The flag for H. R. H. Princess Liliuokalani is to be a white ground with the arms in the centre.
