Barker received more than 400 votes for her design that depicts HI Pride in a circle with the UH campuses surrounding it. The overall design shows the mountains, volcanoes, ocean and sandy shores. “People come from all over the world to see the natural beauty of the islands, and we are very proud to say that they are our homes,” Barker said.
