On May 21, 2022, Morales Group sponsored this year’s Haitian Flag Day festival at Garfield Park. This event, organized by the Haitian Association of Indiana, rounds off the month of May for celebrating Haitian heritage.
The event provided a musical line-up, vendors selling traditional food, and booths for community organizations offering support to the Haitian community as well as those learning about the culture.
Morales Group volunteers connected with visitors, passed out flyers, and offered prizes and resources.
Haitian Flag Day celebrates the creation of the Haitian Flag during the Haitian Revolution, representing the union of African and Creole forces in Haiti in 1803. Local Flag Day festivities are also a celebration of Haitian contributions to the society and culture of the United States.
