The present flag design was first used by the Republic of Haiti under President Alexandre Pétion in 1806. It was readopted by Article 3 of the current Constitution of Haiti on February 25, 1987. The central panel, originally often large and rectangular, was reduced in size and made square as part of its readoption.
