ROSELLE, NJ - Members of the Haitian community and many others came out to celebrate Roselle’s Haitian Flag Day Ceremony last week. Roselle Board of Education member Archange Antoine led the event along with members from the Haitian American Committee and guest speakers as they spoke of the rich culture of the Haitian community.
Officers from the Roselle Police Department raised the flag as the crowd sung the Haitian National Anthem.
“The flag is beautiful and represents independence, liberty, and freedom,” said Mayor Christine Dansereau. “It is red and blue and has a code of arms and a palm tree which represents the pride of a beautiful and courageous people who fought and died for these principles and continue to fight for these ideals to remain strong forever.”
Highlights from the event can be viewed below.
