Reported President's Standard

image by Ivan Sache and Jaume Ollé, 30 June 2001

A president's standard made of the national arms in a white rectangle placed in a blue field was reported in the 50's. The standard might have been used on the president's yacht Sans-Soucis.

A presidential flag was adopted under Paul Magloire (1951-56), but later disappeared.
Jaume Ollé, 18 January 1998

From a paper published in Franciae Vexilla (#22/98, June 2001) - The standard of President Magloire (December 1950 - 22 October 1956) have an orange fringe. The standard is similar in design to the putative army rank flags, a red field with two stars standing for Malgoire's rank.

Presidential Sash

image by Eugene Ipavec and Francisco Gregoric, 11 August 2009

I've seen the Haiti Presidential Sash here in this Bicentennial website. Caption of the picture reads: Thabo Mbeki, President of South Africa, is the only Head of State to visit Haiti in its bicentennial.
The Sash shows the same colors of the Haiti flag, blue and red diagonally displayed from top right shoulder downwards.

On the newspaper El Colombiano on the May 15, 2006 issue, there is a photograph of René Preval, elected President of Haiti back then. The CoA is added, touching the blue edge but not the red one. Oddly enough, it seems it is worn upside down.

It is worn upside down. See these photos at <> and <>.
