Hawaii Motto
The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness
The state motto of Hawaii is "The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness" (Ua Mau ke Ea o ka 'Âina i ka Pono in Hawaiian).

The Hawaii motto was supposedly first uttered by Queen Ke'opuolani in the year of 1825 when she was baptized a Christian. However, the words are later associated with King Kamehameha III of the Kingdom of Hawaii. He was to have uttered the Hawaii motto when the Hawaiian flag was raised over Hawaii on July 31, 1843 - the day when Queen Victoria restored sovereignty to Hawaii after British occupation.

The motto was adopted as the official Hawaii state motto on May 1, 1959 and exists as an element of the Hawaii state seal.
