Flag poles stand in wait, 1893.

A MARVELOUS THING OF NO EQUAL!

This past Monday the flag pole of Mr. and Mrs. Kamakaia was raised by the deft work of Sam Kaloa, and it stands with great honor. There are 30 or more flag poles have the honor of being made and put up by our friend, awaiting the day that the wondrous song will be sung— Continue reading

My Hawaiian Flag, 1913.

This is one of my more favorite of newspaper mastheads. Kuu Hae Hawaii was a short-lived weekly that began on April 19, 1913 and the last extant copy is from July 4, 1913. It was headed by J. A. Akina, Manager; W. K. Poai, Secretary; and L. K. Kakani, Editor.

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.

The Hawaiian Flag! 1883.

The Hawaiian Flag!

The Support of Hawaii!!

It is this symbol which honors you, O Hawaii; it is a mantle for you to have pride in; and above all things, it is the Support for the roof of your house, secured unwaveringly; and it is worthy of pride and boasting. Its awesome beauty as it flutters on the tips of the winds presents Hawaii across the four corners of this globe.

This symbol, a Flag, the affection for it is indelibly emblazoned in all peoples; and thus they are proud of and boast of the Flag of their own nation. Abuse of the flag of a nation is the abusing of the nation and its people. Rebellions, quarrels, and wars have been started between nations of this world because of the scorning and mistreatment of the flag of one nation by another.

Amongst all patriots, among the true natives who honestly prize their land of birth; amongst those who stand steadfast behind their own nation; it is a lei and a cherished thing; yes; it is not only there that their thirst of aloha for their flag is quenched, but there is so much more—for its waving in victory is the Support [Koo] which sustains their independence by way of their nation.

Look at what is happening soon after the overthrow, 1893.

THE BEAUTIFUL FLAG OF HAWAII.

MAY YOU WAVE FOREVER.

You may obtain the glorious flag of our land from the hands of the Secretary of the Hawaii Holomua, Mr. Thomas. K. Nakanaela. All those who have aloha for the Independence of the Land, come and get flags for yourself lest they run out.
