*Hawaiian Flags are purposefully upside down as it is internationally recognized symbol of a nation in distress and a sign of protest against the United States government. Most commonly, it is to represent the solidarity movement of Hawaii. This is rooted in the notion that when Queen Liliuokalani was overthrown in 1893, what followed was an illegal occupation by the United States that continues til this present day.
