The first purely Haitian flag was adopted on May 18, 1803, commemorating Haiti's separation from the French colony. Haiti was the first black community to be declared a free independent country.
This little Haitian sat still as the rest of the people got up, cheering and crowded around ready to form a parade around their village. He sits unaware amongst all the abandoned chairs of what the celebration was all about.
