The two most important holidays for Haitian Americans are Haitian Independence Day and Haitian Flag Day. Haitian flag day commemorates the day in 1804 when Jean-Jacques Dessalines declared independence and restored the country's native name. The flag day recognizes our ancestors who have died fighting for freedom. Planting trees during this holiday is very significant in Leogane, Haiti.
Tree Angels for Haiti is proud to organize and sponsor Haitian Flag Day planting events.
