This is the first of a British-based series...

Niue: Niue was royal nation, and part of the British Empire that first obtained quasi-independence as a territory administered by New Zealand. According to wiki: From the Niue Flag Act 1975: "The Niue National Flag shall be a golden yellow flag, bearing on the upper canton of the hoist thereof the Union Flag, commonly known as the Union Jack, displaying 2 five-pointed yellow stars on the vertical line and on the horizontal line thereof separated by a blue disc containing a larger five-pointed yellow star.”
The yellow field symbolizes the sun, and the “the warm feelings of the Niuean people towards New Zealand and her people.“ NZ is further represented by the four small stars that depict the Southern Cross. Finally the blue disc containing a larger star represents the deep blue sea surrounding the self-governing island of Niue.

Hawaii: The state flag of Hawaii is the only US state flag to include the Union Jack. The canton of the flag of Hawaii contains the Union Flag of the United Kingdom, prominent over the top quarter closest to the flag mast. The field of the flag is composed of eight horizontal stripes, symbolizing the eight major islands (Hawaiʻi, Maui, Kahoʻolawe, Lānaʻi, Molokaʻi, Oʻahu, Kauaʻi, and Niʻihau). The color of the stripes, from the top down, follows the sequence: white, red, blue, white, red, blue, white, red. This ordering distinguishes it from the flag of the British East India Company, as well as various historical flags of the United Kingdom.

British Columbia: The four wavy white and three wavy blue lines symbolize the province's location between the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains. The setting sun represents the fact that British Columbia is Canada's westernmost province. The sun may also reflect the provincial motto "Splendor sine occasu" (beauty without diminish)—or, in other words, the sun that never sets (on the British Empire). Canadian provincial flag

British Indian Ocean Territory: This flag is similar to the flags of other British dependencies and colonies as it has the Union Flag in the upper hoist-side corner. The palm tree and crown are symbols of the Indian Ocean Territory; the white and blue wavy lines represent the waters of the Indian Ocean, where the islands are located. The only inhabitants are the residents of the Anglo-American naval & air facilities; according to wiki: Given that it is impossible for civilians to visit the British Indian Ocean Territory, it is not clear how widely this flag is used.

Tuvalu: As of 1976, it was independent from the Gilbert Islands. Its flag, like many former and current British dependencies, the Tuvaluan flag is a blue ensign based on the Union Flag, which is shown in the upper left canton of the flag; but has a sky blue field rather than the conventional blue. "Tuvalu" is a Polynesian word meaning "eight together", referring to the eight islands which were inhabited. The crest represents the monarchy, and a ninth star was added in the late 90s to reflect population of the 9th island
