The Lā Kū‘oko‘a garment design incorporates four special elements.  The black Kuokoa heading is taken directly from the Hawaiian language newspaper Ka Nupepa Kuokoa heading. In the foreground is a  picture of Timoteo Ha‘alilio, the Hawaiian diplomat chosen by King Kauikeaouli to journey to other countries, to secure treaties to establish Hawai‘i as an independent nation. The background features the Hawaiian flag and sections of a Mo‘olelo Nūpepa or a Hawaiian language newspaper article. The article outlines the events that lead up to the first independence day, the individuals who were vital in securing Hawai‘i’s independence, and why Hawaiians should know, remember and celebrate Lā Kū‘oko‘a.
