Flag of the Hawaiian French Frigate Shoals

The over all pattern is based upon the flag of Hawaii but with a French motif recognizing that France was the first nation to chart these islands.  However in the canton is not a European design but rather an Eastern Design to reflect Hawaii's connection to the orient.  Although the Yin and Yang symbol looks similar to the Korean Flag its orientation is perpendicular and the balanced counter charged dots are present, as they would be in a traditional Chinese Yin and Yang symbol.
