‘Ula’ula Hibiscus

‘Ula’ula–red–is a sacred color associated with royalty in Hawaii. Here, a red hibiscus shows brightly in the afternoon sun with yellow pollen.

Yellow and red together are seen on many pieces of royal clothing, jewelry, and structures. Often created by weaving bird feathers or flowers, the colors let others know that they were in the presence of royalty and to act accordingly.
