The House of Kamakahelei is honored to have the Ka Hae Hawai'i that was used between 1816 and 1845 in the Kingdom of Hawai’i.

In 1816, King Kamehameha commissioned his own flag for the Kingdom. It was probably designed by one of the commanders of the Royal Hawaiian Navy (which consisted of HHMS Kaimiloa) former officers of the British Royal Navy who advised King Kamehameha and was based on a form of the British naval ensign.

    • 1794-1816 Hawaii flew the Union Jack as its National Flag
    • 1816-1843 Hawaii flew an early version of the present flag with 9 stripes
    • 25 Feb - 31 July 1843 British occupation; all Hawaiian Flags were destroyed
    • 31 July 1843 King Kamehameha III spoke his famous prayer of thanksgiving, a part of which serves today as the State Motto while a Hawaiian Flag that included a dove and olive branch was hoisted.
    • 20 May 1845 present Hawaiian Flag with 8 stripes was adopted.

H.R.H. Prince Darrick wishes to thank Don Alfonso Ceballos- Escalera Gila, Marques de la Floresta, Chronicler of Arms for Castile and León & Dr. Joseph Crews Persevante Leon Blanco for their kind and generous gift of the Ka Hae Hawai’i.
