The ukulele was introduced to the Hawaiian Islands by Portuguese immigrants in the late 19th century. One immigrant in particular, cabinet maker Manuel Nunes, is generally credited as one of the pioneers of the ukulele. Manuel began building ukuleles commercially in Honolulu in 1880 and it was soon embraced as the national instrument of Hawaii. In paying homage to the legacy of Manuel Nunes and his role in establishing the ukulele and its music, The 1880 Ukulele Company logo incorporates the numerals 1880 flanked by the outline of antique wood carving tools over a stylised royal crown.
