HANG WO & CO.,
(By Jas. W. Girvin.)
The Hawaiian Flag was Invented
about 1S13 at the suggestion of an Am
erican. Prior to that date the flag of
Great Britain was used as the ensign
of Hawaii. There is no doubt of the
friendship which existed between Ka-
mehameha and the great explorer, Van
couver, -who had showp much kindness
to him and his poople and probably on
receipt of a present of a British flag
the King was pleased to adopt it as the
ensign of his country. On the break
ing out of the war of 1812, between
Great Britain and America, Kameha-
nveha I was solicitous that he be not
considered an ally of either of these
great powers, with both of whom he
was in friendly relations. He, there
fore, decided to adopt an ensign which
at onoe should show his friendship to
both and at the same time would dis
play his independence of either.
The inventor of the Has: was no
doubt the King, himself, and the mak
er of it under his directions, was Capt.
Geo. C. Beckley, an Englishman who
had been made a high chief, and whose
descendents are still amongst us.
The King said that the adoption of
the "Union Jack" was to demonstrate
his friendship for England. The
"Union Jack," named so from its being
a union of the crosses of St. George, St.
Andrew, and St. Patrick, and which
was called the "meteor flag of England"
was invented after the union with Ire
land in 1801.
By adopting the stripes and tricolor
of America he showed his friendship
to that country, and the tout ensemble
of the flag linked his with the two
greatest commercial countries of the
The King understood the meaning of
the three colors better than he did that
of the three crosses.
He ordered -white, symbolical of pur
ity and sincerity, for the uppermost
stripe, nothing being higher than the
sun from whence emanates the bril
liant white light by which all things
are discerned. The ancient priests in
variably wore white tapa garments
when officiating at any propitiatory
In ignorance of the wisdom of Ka
mehameha, the Great, in adopting
white for the upper bar, many natives
of late years have declaimed against
it, saying that it presaged that the
white man would eventually rule the
land. Kauikeaouli. Kamehameha III.
had no such presentiment. The motto
he adopted for the Hawaiian coat of
arms, "Ua mail ke ea o ka aina i ka
pono" (the breath of the land is con
tinued through righteousness) is the
highest sentiment to be found on the
escutcheon of any of the nations of
the earth. Had the Hawaiian rulers
lived up to it the whites would never
have dominated the land.
The King ordered red as the color for
the second bar, as it was a color very
highly prized by the people, it being
symbolical of blood, "which is the life."
Singular it is that this is the only color
which will not fade and has been held
in as high esteem by royalty as purple
among the nations. The best red we
know of is manufactured from the
cochineal and is in reality the blood of
He ordered blue for the lowermost
stripe, blue being a symbol of continu
ity, in the hope that his Kingdom would
continue forever. From the azure vault
of heaven which encircles the globe and
from the deep blue sea which encircles
the Islands his idea of continuity was
These three stripes were thrice re
peated. At the present time the legally
adopted flag of Hawaii is minus the
lower or blue stripe, as the Hawaiian
Flag, as seen and described by Capt.
de Freycinet floating at Kawaihae and
over the fort at Honolulu in 1817.
At what time this last bar was
dropped, or why, history sayeth not.
It may be that some ingenious person,
wishing to make a more symetrical
flag, or one of better proportions,
dropped the ninth bar and soothed the
Hawaiians by suggesting that the eight
remaining bars represented the eight
inhabited islands of the group. This
was absurd, as late discoveries have
proven that Niihau was as much an in
habited island as Kakoolawe. How
ever, Ave have the Hawaiian Flag as it
is and it has been universally admired.
We trust it will long remain- the State
Flag of Hawaii. It is a singular co
incidence that at this period of the
world's history when the great Anglo-
Saxon -nations, Great Britain and Am
erica, are approaching so near to one
another in a great alliance, that the
latter should have annexed a people
whose flag was a combination of those
of the two, and probably just in time to
save that flag from being absorbed by
an aggressive oriental nation.

EMPEROR FRANZ JOSEF.
The tragic death of the Empress of Austria made it necessary to grreatly modify
the arrangements that had been made to celebrate the fiftieth year of the reipn of
Emperor Josef. On December 2, anniversary of the accession of Josef, in 1848, 4,000
civic honors were conferred. The reign of the Emperor was eulogized in the Reichirath.
