Although I did not fully understand the meaning of the painting, but I like this feeling.V.

Hi GuoJun! That's OK. I will be so happy to walk you through... This painting simply illustrates the creation of Haiti's flag in the year 1803. During the battle for independence, the indigenous army wanted their own flag. Dessalines, one of the heroes of our independence, ripped off the white part from the tri-colored colonial French flag and gave the red and blue parts to his goddaughter, Catherine flon, to sew toguether. This is how the Haitian flag was created. By the way, there will be a book exhibit in Bejing, China from August 30, 2013, to Sunday Sept 1, 2013. My artwork book ' History and Culture of Haiti' will be displayed. Thanks GuoJun for visiting my gallery. I appreciate your genuine comment.

Today is May 18, 2012. This is the 209 anniversary of the Hiatian flag created in 1803 at the Congress of Arcahaie. This was a celebation week that started from last Monday May 14, to today Friday May 18,2012. Today there was a ceremony held at Arcahaie to celebrate the birth of the flag. The celebration opened with a Te Deum, which is a liturgical Christian hymn of praise to God. The festive was followed by speeches from Haitian officials and the President of Haiti, Michel Martelly; and then school parades and dances were performed. "Bonne fete du drapeau Haitien! Bonne fete a tous les Haitiens!!!
