By the Government.


At the meeting of the Privy Council [Poe Kukakuka Malu], on the 27th of February 1846, this was agreed to.

The Hawaiian flag will be flown from all of the ships of this Archipelago, and we believe that it will be good for the Governors and others to throw parties as they see fit, but with propriety and honor, loyal to the King of this independent Nation.
