We’re continuing our ongoing series about Flags of the World today by taking a look at the flag of Haiti. Though the flag of Haiti isn’t an especially well-known flag, it is certainly hard to forget once it’s seen. A relatively new flag, the Haitian flag is simple and straightforward. As far as flag design goes, it’s just about as easy going and relaxed as a flag can be. It’s a simple 2 color flag with a crest. We’ll get into the details below.

The Haitian lag is a bicolour flag featuring two horizontal bars of red and blue. In the very middle of the flag there is a coat of arms with weapons on top of a hill. This is to represent their independence and freedom. Below the emblem, there is the motto “L’Union Fait La Force” meaning “Unity Makes Strength.”
This flag is traditionally older, but was recently readopted in 2012. It is said that the flag was originally designed when the Haitian revolutionary leader Jean-Jacques Dessalines made the flag by taking a French tricolour and ripping out the white band in the middle, which is about as great a flag origin story we’ve come across. He asked his god-daughter to sew the red and blue part together and the rest–as they say–is history.
