About your Flag:
Size: 28″ x 40″
Aloha means “hello, goodbye, love or love to you”. It is a word that represents Hawai`i and the Hawaiian spirit well. In my design a beloved Hawaiian gecko climbs the letters of ALOHA to greet you. There are several varieties of Gecko on the Hawaiian Islands; this particular one is the colorful orange-spotted day gecko. Geckos are everywhere in Hawai`i and are believed to act as guardians. The background design combines a pineapple Hawaiian quilt block with a palaka print to honor the history of one of Hawaii’s traditional crops ~ the Pineapple. Palaka is a sturdy cloth historically used to make the clothing worn by plantation farmers and paniolos (cowboys). It was originally a blue and white checked pattern, but now can be found in bright colors and blended in with other patterns, as I have done here.
