official symbols for the State of Hawaii are described
and defined in Chapter 5 of the Hawaii Revised Statutes,
Hawaii's state laws. Some are well known, such as
Hawaii's nickname or popular name (The Aloha State).
Others are less known, such as the official state
individual and team sports (surfing and outrigger
canoe paddling). And then there are common misconceptions.
The humuhumunukunukuapua'a is NOT the state fish!
So here they are, straight from the Legislature's
Web site, and they should know, eh? Links will open
the actual language for each section in a new window.
Just close the window to return. Dates are the last
date of action, such as an amendment, and may not
be the original date of adoption.
