Since 1998, the month of May is Haitian Heritage Month celebrated in many states across the United States. The city of Boston lead the initiative that would later be accepted by the United States House of Representative.

On May 18th, Haitian natives and diaspora over the world, reflect on this day to commemorate the Haitian flag, symbol of unity and freedom.

As shown in this picture,  the Haitian flag went through a multitude of colors when sewed in 1803 by Catherine Flon to its final adoption, in 1986.

Happy Haitian Heritage Month!
