    Yes it's true; Hawaii, America's 50th state is emblazoned with the Union Jack symbol. The flag was commissioned by Hawaii's King Kamehameha the 1st. The flag has the Union Jack symbol in the upper left hand corner and eight red, white and blue stripes. The stripes represent the eight main islands, and the Union Jack is there to honor the King's friendship with the British.
