Magnum problem

Jon in Taiwan is vexed by vexillology:

My brother in law and his family are going to Hawaii tomorrow. I want to just be happy for them but one question troubles me.

Answer me this: In Magnum PI, Magnum’s boss or buddy – I don’t remember which – is British and had a Union Jack flying at his office. Why??? I thought Hawaii is the USA?

I have never seen Magnum PI, so from that position of ignorance, and going only on the evidence supplied by Jon, I deduce that a Union Jack would be thus deployed as a shortcut to establish that the character is a big British Brit. Perhaps he also drinks tea, wears tweed golfing bags and says, “What what?”

To add to Jon’s confusion, the Hawaiian flag does incorporate the Union Jack:

Most of all, I’m sad that this issue is interfering with Jon’s wish to be happy for his brother. Somebody, please step in and deliver the truth in the comments. A family’s contentment depends upon you.

PS Union Jack, ‘Union Flag’ – don’t even bother.
