As this year’s theme is “Making the World a Better Place for Our Future, From the Pacific to the World,” we wanted to spread to others through our design the messages of taking care of oneself and others, contributing to the community, and building a better world.
As we face pollution, one of the most known problems around the world, we wanted to express that regardless of age and gender, with everyone working together, even the small steps can solve one of the most significant issues. Similarly, the intertwined ti leaf lei symbolize the intertwining of our Hawaiian culture and the uniting of everyone in peace and strength. Held together by the dove and crow from the topper, the rope holding the 12 country flags represents the bond between the nations of the world, from the highest peak of Mauna Kea of Hawaii to Mount Fuji of Japan. The sunrise connecting them all represents the start of a new day, full of endless possibilities.
