Whose Is It?

The Kingdom of Hawaii's flag is now used as our state flag. How wild is that? This state actually flies the official flag of a country forcefully overthrown by the U.S.

Even crazier is that the upper corner of the flag consists of the Union Flag of the United Kingdom. Yes, we fly the flag of Great Britain as well. Are there any other states which fly the flags of other countries as their own? I don't think so.

Disclaimer: the Kingdom of Hawaii flew other flags as well
