haiti flag day

One of the primary symbols of Haitian freedom is the Haitian flag created in Arcahaie, a town located outside of Port-au-Prince on May 18, 1803. Since then, May 18th has been observed as the Haitian Flag Day as it has become a symbol of pride, unity, and individual liberty. In Haiti, Flag Day is a major national holiday celebrated with great fanfare on the grounds of the national palace and all cities in the country; also in other countries with a large number of Haitians.
