The BK Wings Design consists of the term Black Koa, BK within a skull outline, wings, and the term Strength and Honor. Black Koa (BK) refers to “Warriors of Mana” and pays homage to the ancient warriors of Kaʻu. The term Black Koa reminds us to be modern day warriors for what is Pono. The skull represents our iwi kūpuna (ancestors) and reminds us that our kūpuna are with us and that we must honor them by our positive acts and deeds. The wings represent the ‘Io (Hawaiian Hawk), ancient symbol of royalty and mana (authority and spiritual power). The kaona (deeper/hidden meaning) of the ‘Io wings is to remind us that we are all of royal birth with unlimited potential as sons and daughters of ke Akua (God). The term “Strength and Honor” has been embraced by warriors of the world throughout the ages. The strength of character, will, and spirit, not simply of arm and flesh. This includes the willingness to stand for one’s morals and beliefs regardless, of the consequences.
