Flag of Haiti

The national flag of Haiti contains two bands colored blue and red.  During the revolution against the French the tricolored French flag was torn and the blue and red parts were stitched together to form the two bands of Haiti`s flag.  In 1843 the coat of arms of Haiti was to the official national flag.  The coat of arms of Haiti sits in a white panel on the middle of the flag.   The coat of arms contains a trophy of weapons ready to defend freedom, a palm tree in the middle and at the bottom a white scroll with the national motto “L`Union Fait La Force” (unity makes strength).  The national flag was added on February 25, 1987.
