Probably our most popular model to date a true Hawaiian gi of old Hawaii theme not reggae influenced as some may think. Main styling of the gi is drawn from Hawaii's Kanaka Maoli Flag which is said to have been Kamehameha’s personal flag long before the modern Hawaiian flag. British navy Captain Lord George Paulet destroyed it when he took control of Hawaii for five months in 1843. At the flag’s center is a green shield bearing a coat of arms, which include a Kahili, the original Hawaiian royal standard, and two paddles, meant to represent the voyaging tradition of the Native Hawaiians. The flag’s color scheme is red, yellow and green, meant to represent different groups within Hawaiian society. The yellow is symbolic of the Alii, the powerful royal class. Red represents the Konohiki, the land caste that served the Ali'i. Green signifies the Makaainana.
