Shipping from the State of Hawaii to Missouri
Hawaii (Hawaiian: Hawai‘i), affluence of natural beauty and serenity, is a group of volcanic islands in the central Pacific Ocean. The islands were annexed by the United States in 1900, and as a U.S. territory saw population expansion and the establishment of a plantation system for growing sugarcane and pineapples. On the fateful morning of December 7, 1941, during World War 2, hundreds of Japanese fighter planes attacked the American naval base at Pearl Harbor near Honolulu. The surprise attack destroyed nearly 20 vessels, killed more than 2,000 American soldiers, and propelled the United States into war. Hawaii was instated into the 50th U.S. state on August 21, 1959.
The islands lie 2,397 miles from San Francisco, California, to the east and 5,293 miles from Manila, in the Philippines, to the west. The capital is Honolulu, located on the island of Oahu.
The state is widely known as the ‘Aloha State’ with the Pua Aloalo (Yellow Hibiscus) considered the state flower. ‘Ua Mau Ke Ea o ka ʻĀina I ka Pono (“The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness”)’- is the state motto.
