The warrior on the left back flipper is a symbol of strength and tenacity, and it represents him, starting the journey (the flight of the albatross, a long voyage with safe return) that led to meet new friends along the way, and to a new beginning (the koru).
The path of Kamehameha represents the challenges along the way, which brought a new perspective on life (the frigate bird): the manta symbolizes freedom, surrounded by a sun for joy, and it includes a lokahi and a Marquesan cross for balance and harmony with nature.

The star between the manta and the frigate bird shows them as a direction to be followed and it represents their importance.

Waves symbolize change and shark teeth within them are for protection in water.

The two tiki on the sides bring protection from all directions, the fish hooks symbolize prosperity, and the seashell love and intimacy.
