Happy Haitian Flag Day!
The flag of Haiti (French: drapeau d'Haïti, Haitian Creole: drapo Ayiti) is the national flag of the Republic of Haiti. It is a bicolour flag featuring two horizontal bands coloured blue and red, emblazoned by a white rectangular panel bearing the coat of arms of Haiti. The coat of arms depicts a trophy of weapons atop a green hill and a royal palm symbolizing independence. The palm is topped by the Cap of Liberty. The motto L'Union fait la force (French for 'Unity makes strength') appears on a white ribbon below the arrangement.
Haitian Flag Day is a Haitian holiday to celebrate the creation of the Flag of Haiti. The day is celebrated each year on 18 May, which is the anniversary of the date of the flag's adoption in 1803. The day is observed in numerous cities of the US that have a large Haitian population, including Miami, where Stacks Custom Jewelry is based.
