Queen Lili’uokalani was the last sovereign of the Kalākaua dynasty, which had ruled a unified Hawaiian kingdom since 1810. She was also the first woman to rule Hawaii. Lili’uokalani regretted the loss of power the monarchy had suffered under Kalākaua and tried to restore something of the traditional autocracy to the Hawaiian throne. She had earlier made her position clear by opposing the renewed Reciprocity Treaty of 1887, signed by Kalākaua, granting privileged commercial concessions to the United States and ceding to them the port of Pearl Harbor. This color was named in honor of her story to restore power of the monarchy and fought against annexation by the United States. The color represents the lush lands of Hawai’i.
