The City and County of Honolulu is a consolidated city county located in the U.S. state of Hawaii. The municipality and county includes both the urban district of Honolulu (the state's largest city and capital) and the rest of the island of O ahu, as well as several minor outlying islands, including all of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (islands beyond Niihau except Midway Atoll).

The consolidated city-county was established in the city charter adopted in 1907 and accepted by the Legislature of the Territory of Hawai i. As a municipal corporation and jurisdiction it manages aspects of government traditionally exercised by both municipalities and counties in the rest of the United States.

The population of the City and County at the 2010 Census was 953,207, making it the tenth-largest municipality in the United States. Because of Hawaii's municipal structure, the United States Census Bureau still divides the City and County of Honolulu into several census-designated places for statistical purposes, despite the fact that it is the only incorporated area in the state.

The current mayor of Honolulu is Peter Carlisle, succeeding Kirk Caldwell. The city-county motto is Ha aheo No O Honolulu (Honolulu Pride).
