Kingdom too?[edit]

There is a picture of the Kingdom coat of arms, but no discussion of that. It might not deserve its own article, but at least it should be mentioned here so that people do not confuse the Kingdom and State seals. Also talk about how it evolved from one to the other. And was there a Kingdom flag, or was the current state flag used? W Nowicki (talk) 03:01, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

The Provisional Government, the Republic, the Territory, and the State of Hawaii used the same flag as the Kingdom of Hawaii. Shows a lot of creativity the haoles who overthrew the monarchy had. I bet a seperate arms existed for the Republic but I hidely doubt we'll eveer find it; I know from a source that I can't find anymore that the Republic of Hawaii did change some wordings in the national anthem of Hawaii Ponoi to make it more republican and less royal.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 06:04, 6 July 2011 (UTC)
This article should mention the origin of the coat of arms itself or create a seperate article for the arms itself and possibly another for the motto. I read in Under Hawaiian Skies by Albert Pierce Taylor, that the coat of arms was created by Hoapili during Kamehameha III's reign. It would make sense that Hoapili placed his father Kameʻeiamoku and his uncle Kamanawa on the coat of arms. But this site seems to claim that Haalilio was the mastermind behind this design.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 06:11, 6 July 2011 (UTC)
