Haitian Flag, a Symbol of Unity and Sovereignty

To Haitians at home and in the Diaspora, let's pause today on he 18th of May, 2016 to salute our nation's flag which is a sacred symbol of freedom and justice. Our red and blue flag with the country's coat of arms emblazoned in the center was created in 1803 for the independence of Haiti. Jean Jacques Dessalines was the one who removed the white from the French tri-color flag to send a message to the world that we are no longer under the occupation of France. Remember we were a group of unskilled Black slaves who defeated France in the historic revolutionary war.


Let's rally around that symbol of emancipation from colonialism and slavery and the creation of the Western Hemisphere's first Black republic.
