Haiti Flag

The first flag of Haiti was the French tri-colour. On independence in 1804, Jean Jacques Dessalines became emperor and adopted a bi-colour of black and red. In 1806, Dessalines was assassinated and the new president, Alexandre Petion reintroduced red and blue. In 1818, when Jean-Pierre Boyer came to power, the bands were changed from vertical to horizontal.

In 1844 the arms were added in a rectangular white frame. The arms consist of a cabbage palm surmounted by the Phrygian Cap of liberty and ornamented with trophies (rifles, flags, hatchets, cannons, cannonballs, trumpets, anchors etc). In 1964 when Fran├žois Duvalier declared himself President for life, the flag reverted to the Dessalines pattern. After Duvalier died, his son, Jean-Claude, took over the country until being ousted in 1986,at which point the flag returned to the blue-red horizontal bi-colour.
