    Haiti Flag history
    The first flag of Haiti was sewn by Catherine Flon in the city of Archaie on May 18, 1803. Haitians celebrate May 18 as the flag day to commemorate that historic event. The Haitian flag as it’s known today first came into use in 1806. The story behind the flag’s red-and-blue backdrop is that Jean-Jacques Dessalines, a leader in the Haitian Revolution against France, removed the white in the French flag to symbolize an end to white European influence.
