The Yellow Hibiscous.

Each island in Hawaii has a designated official flower but the Yellow Hibiscus is the official state flower of Hawaii.

The hibiscus was named the official flower in 1923.

However, the variety was not specified & as a result the Chinese Red Hibscous was considered as the state flower for a long time in Hawaii until 1988, when it was officially announced to be the Yellow Hibiscus. This was probably chosen because yellow flowers evoke feelings of happiness and symbolizes friendship, pride and joy!

 

Good one Hawaii!

The Yellow Hibiscous is also known as 'Ma‘ o hau hele.'
