The Royal Family of Hawai'i Official Website
The Order was first introduced as the Order of the Cross and Crown in an Order-in Council
of H.M. King Kamehameha III in July 1848, through his Minister for Foreign Affairs,
Robert Wyllie. The Order was not conferred until the reign of H.M. King Kamehameha V, Lot Kapuaiwa. The statues of the Order, as the Order of the Crown of Hawaiʻi, were amended during the reign of H.M. King Kalākaua and awards of the Order continued. After H.M. Queen Liliʻuokalani was illegally deposed, the Order of the Crown was again held in abeyance.  
Re-established and amended in 2016 by HRH Princess Owana Ka`ohelelani La`anui Salazar,
 the "de jure" and "fons honorum" head of the royal house and Grandmaster of the order.

The revised 2016 order is modified with the ribbon color of gold with purple edges, the shield has
a purple ring surrounding the Hawaiian crown with the motto "Onipa`a".

The Order of the Crown is highly awarded to the head of states/dynasties, 
also as awards of merit to loyal supporters of the royal family.
