Hawaii, White (Ninety Percent) State

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.
