A Citizen Petition from Maui is being shared to garner community support for a Flag Pole Monument that would fly only H.M. King Kamehameha III Kauikeaouli’s personal standard, and include historical, political, and culture information.
From the Petition:
“Lahaina, Maui is the original capitol of Hawaii. Lahaina became the epicentre for politics, innovation, and trade. Lahaina led Hawaii by creating and adopting the first Constitution. The Bill of Rights as well was signed by H.M. King Kamehameha III Kauikeaouli in Lahaina. These few basic facts are practically unheard of by the average person, much less the many tourists that come to our shores.
A flag pole monument at Kamehameha Iki Park, which flies only H.M. King Kamehameha III Kauikeaouli’s personal standard, will draw in locals and visitors alike to learn more about Lahaina. The historical, political, and cultural information at the flag pole monument can easily became a major stop for visitors both domestic and foreign who crave a deeper understanding of Hawaii. This influx will galvanise local businesses in the short and long term, increase Lahaina’s appeal as a must see historic town, pave the way for many more historical site monuments, and most likely even create new jobs in response…” Read More on the Petition via this direct link.
