Hawaii was once an independent kingdom. (1810 - 1893) The flag was designed at the request of King Kamehameha I. It has eight stripes of white, red and blue that represent the eight main islands. The flag of Great Britain is emblazoned in the upper left corner to honor Hawaii's friendship with the British. The combination of the stripes of the United States flag and the Union Jack of Great Britain is said to have pleased the merchant shippers of both nations. Flag adopted for official state use in 1959.

Kawishiwi Beavers
1959 - 1960
In 1959 and 1960 The USS Kawishiwi AO-146 sponsored a baseball team in the Pearl Harbor area named the "KAWISHIWI BEAVERS".  This team was for 13-15 year olds of the Babe Ruth Baseball League.  One of those players was  15 year old, Byron Reynolds who now lives on the East Coast.

A few of the Kawishiwi Beavers team were selected  to play on a 13-15 year olds Babe Ruth League All Star team that summer of '60.....playing against other such teams from around Hawaii, playing for the state championship. We won that state championship that August of '60.....and our all star team went off to Utah to play in the National Championships where we finished second losing the title game 4-3.

The reason they were called Beavers was the Kawishiwi's namesake, the Kawishiwi River in Northern Minnesota is lined with Beaver Dams.
