Haitian Flag Day Celebrated at Renaissance Adult Day Services

Everyone at the Brooklyn location of Renaissance Adult Day Services had a wonderful time when they celebrated Haitian Flag Day on My 18, 2017. They spent some time discussing the significance of the holiday:

Flag day is a traditional festival that all Haitians celebrate every year, created on May 18th, 1803 in Arcahaie, Haiti. The national flag day  is a bicolor  flag featured two horizontal band colored Bleu and Red with a white panel bearing the coat of arms. The coat of arms depicts a trophy of weapon on top of a green hill, ready to defend freedom, and a royal palm symbolizing independence. The palm is topped by the cap of liberty. The motto L”Union Fait La Force (“Unity Makes Strength”) appears on a white ribbon below on the flag.

Catherine Flon is regarded as one of the symbols of the Haitian Revolution and Independence. She is celebrated for Sewing the Haitian flag in 1803 and maintains an important place in Haitian memory of the revolution to this day.
