Haiti celebrates Flag Day on May 18, a major national holiday. The flag’s origin is tightly linked to a history of struggle for freedom from the French in Haiti.

On May 18, 1803, the leaders of free slaves and the men of color in Haiti agreed on a flag, with blue and red bands placed vertically. The blue symbolized the mulattos and blacks, while the red symbolized their blood. The design of the flag, including colors, changed in ensuing years. But on Feb. 25, 1986 Haitians requested the red and blue flag be brought back.
