clearly a UK + Russia, but in the U.S.A. format, if you will.

What does it mean? Did something big happen on this day way back in history??

Nothing to do with the date, but November 19 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nov_19) was still an eventful date in history...

That's the Hawaii state flag.

Here is a description I found of the flag:

"Hawaii was once an independent kingdom. (1810 - 1893) The flag was designed at the request of King Kamehameha I. It has eight stripes of white, red and blue that represent the eight main islands. The flag of Great Britain is emblazoned in the upper left corner to honor Hawaii's friendship with the British."
