Hawaii Island Colors

Adopted in 2000

Each of the Hawaiian Islands has its own emblem as designated by the Territorial Legislature in 1923. The State of Hawai'i also has its own emblem. These symbols are all flowers or plants, except for Ni'ihau's emblem, which is a seashell. Each Hawaiian Island is also represented by a color associated with its emblem.

Each Hawaiian island also designates an official flower or lei material -

Hawai'i: red pua lehua ('ohi'a blossom),
Maui: lokelani (pink Damask rose),
O'ahu: pua 'ilima,
Kaua'i: mokihana berry, Moloka'i - Pua Kukui (blossom of candlenut tree),
;Lana'i: kauna'oa (native dodder), Ni'ihau: pupu (tiny seashells), and
Kaho'olawe: hinahina (native beach heliotrope).
