Flag of Haiti

The flag of Haiti was officially adopted on February 25, 1987.

As a former French colony, the blue and red colors are modeled after the French Tricolore. The national coat of arms (shown) depicts a trophy of weapons ready to defend freedom, and a royal palm for independence.

Coat of Arms of Haiti

The coat of arms of Haiti shows six draped flags of the country, three on each side, which are located in front of a palm tree and cannons.

In front of the cannons are a drum, a bugle, long guns, and ship anchors. Above the palm tree, there is a Phrygian cap placed as a symbol of freedom.

Just above the ribbon with the motto are two pieces of chain with a broken link symbolizing the broken chain of slavery. On the ribbon is the national motto of Haiti "L'Union Fait La Force" which means "Union Makes Strength".
