Brief History

The first flag in the region was Burgundy cross due to the area being a Spanish Colony called the Captaincy General of Santo Domingo.

From 1625 Part of Haiti was name Saint-Domingue and under French control. The flag flown in that area was the pre-French Revolution flag which contained a crowned shield from the Royal Coat of Arms on a plain white field.

In 1794 the French acquired the whole of Santo Domingo and the blue-white-red vertical tricolour flag was adopted.

In 1803 a blue-red bicolour revolution flag with white text stating “Liberty or Death” was adopted as a revolution flag against the French.

By 1804 the country was free from French control and renamed The Empire of Haiti. The flag adopted was a black and red bicolour. With the black representing death and the red freedom.

Haiti split into two factions in 1806.  Northern Haiti became the State of Haiti with a equal parts dark blue and red bicolour flag.

Southern Haiti became the Republic of Haiti and adopted a blue-red horizontal bicolour with coat of arms in the centre.

In 1811 the State of Haiti became under monarchical rule and renamed the Kingdom of Haiti. The flag adopted was a red and black bicolour with phoenix coat of arms in the centre. In 1820 Haiti was unified.

The Second Empire of Haiti was established in 1849 under Emperor Faustin I of Haiti. The flag was the the blue-red horizontal bicolour of the Republic of Haiti with a new Imperial Coat of Arms. When the Emperor was overthrown in 1859 the Flag of the Republic of Haiti was restored.

Between 1964 and 1986 the Flag of Haiti was changed to the black-red bicolour of the first Empire with the coat of arms at the centre by president Jean-Claude Duvalier.

In 1986 the blue-red horizontal bicolour flag with coat of arms at the centre was adopted as the national flag and the bicolour flag without the coat of arms as the civil flag.

The Coat of Arms of Haiti

The Coat of Arms of Haiti was adopted in 1986 and features a Phrygian capped palm tree surrounded by cannons, bugles, flagged spears, a drum, anchors, cannel balls. With a banner stating “UNITY MAKES STRENGTH” underneath.

The previous flag used between 1964 and 1986 was similar with the older black-red flag draped over the spears and missing the Phrygian cap.
