Kalepa is an old Hawaiian word, which literally means "flag". The 'kalepa' was raised on the homes and businesses of the islanders to indicate that they were ready to trade, or awaiting supplies or correspondence. The ships would see the flags and know which merchants or homes they would be doing business with. 'Kalepa', or 'flag', has evolved to also mean 'merchant'.
