Haitian Community of Minnesota The Haitian flag has long been a symbol of pride for Haiti. Haitian Flag Day on Saturday, May 18, 2019 is all about celebrating the culture and heritage of the Haitian flag, which is emblazoned with the country’s coat of arms and the colors red and blue, adopted from the French flag. Haiti gained its independence from colonial rule in 1804, making it the first country in Latin America, in the Caribbean and in Africa to defeat a European colonial power, often referred to as the first Black Republic!

Haitian Flag Day events take place not just in Haiti, but in U.S. cities as well. People come and enjoy the day, taste the food, listen to the music, and see how joyful this community is. The Haitian flag as it’s known today first came into use in 1806. The story behind the flag’s red-and-blue backdrop is that Jean-Jacques Dessalines, a leader in the Haitian Revolution against France, removed the white in the French flag to symbolize an end to white European influence. The blue is said to represent the former enslaved Africans who were brought across the blue Atlantic Ocean to Haiti by the country’s colonial rulers. The red stands for the blood of the Haitians regardless of ancestry, recognizing those of African, Taino and other diverse lineages.

Happy Haitian Flag Day from Rose, HCM Executive Director

Haitian Community of Minnesota A heartfelt thanks to everyone who is helping Philome. I just returned from Haiti to see Philome. I'm glad to let you know that everything went well with the most recent surgery. Philome's rectum has been reconstructed. He still has his stoma while he heals. The nurses at the hospital have become very close to Philome, but he finally went home, on his birthday! He will recovery at home and make regular visits back to Port-a-Prince for dilation and to check for infection. As part of his recovery he is getting a nutritional drink (ensure) to help him recover. He will go back in two months to have his stoma closed and have his colon reconnected. Hopefully, his final surgery!
There were lots of kids dying while I was in Haiti, but God protected Philome with all the surgery and Dr. Lousima, the wonderful surgeon. Philome really believes in God and appreciates what you all have done for him.
Please continue to help. There are many more children like Philome who need your prayers and support.
