Haitian Flag Day celebrated at Binghamton City Hall – WBNG-TV

BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — Mayor Richard C. David joined members of the Southern Tier Haitian Association at Binghamton City Hall in honor of Haitian Flag Day.
Haitian Flag Day is celebrated every May 18 in honor of the creation and adoption of the flag, as well as the revolution for their freedom from the French.
The members of the Southern Tier Haitian Association (STHA) is an organization of volunteers who came together in 2018 to unite, inform, and provide sensible solutions.
Their goal is to empower others in their community, and to help people understand Haitian culture.
Over the weekend, the STHA held an evening prayer for Haiti at the Two Rivers Church in Johnson City.
They are always looking of more volunteers. You can check out their website stha.org to contribute to their mission or for more information.
The flag was adopted on this day in 1803 and sewn by Haitian seamstress Catherine Flon.
This holiday is a source of pride for Haitians world wide.
