Flags of the Nations: Haiti


The flag of Haiti features two horizontal bands coloured blue over red, defaced by a white panel bearing the coat of arms. The coat of arms depicts a trophy of weapons ready to defend freedom and a royal palm for independence. The palm is topped by the Cap of Liberty.

Since September 1, 2009, the Church of the Nazarene's Global Ministry Center (GMC) proudly flies a flag each week of one of the many nations in which the denomination is present in ministry. Leaders were invited to send a national flag to be flown at the GMC alongside the flag of the United States*. The national flags rotate weekly, and photos of them raised are sent to the church leaders of that country.

This week: Haiti

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Haiti in 1950.

Haiti had a population of 10,485,800 in 2016. That same year, Haiti reported 714 Churches of the Nazarene, 669 of which had been officially organized. Haiti has 134,236 total members.

Located on the Mesoamerica Region, Haiti has three Phase 3 districts and nine Phase 2 districts. For more information about the Mesoamerica Region, visit mesoamericaregion.org.

* = The weekly highlighted flag is raised on the middle of three poles in compliance with U.S. government protocols. It flies to the left of the GMC host-nation United States flag, which flies above the host-state flag of Kansas. The Christian flag flies on the third pole.

The Global Ministry Center is the mission and service hub of the Church of the Nazarene.
