Flags of Hawaii

Flags of the Past, Present and... Future?

June 14 is National Flag Day. Inspired by three decades of state and local celebrations, Flag Day - the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777 - was officially established by the Proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson on May 30th, 1916.

While Flag Day was celebrated in various communities for years after Wilson's proclamation, it was not until August 3rd, 1949, that President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14th of each year as National Flag Day.

On July 26, 1990, Hawaii Governor John Waihe'e proclaimed July 31 as La Hae Hawaii - Hawaiian Flag Day.

Two other flags that you'll see in Hawaii is the flag of the Independent & Sovereign Nation-State Of Hawai'i and the "Hawaiian People's Flag" sometimes referred to as the Kanaka Maoli Flag.

We'll will take a closer look at all four of these flags that you'll see in Hawaii.
