The flag of Liechtenstein shows the same color arrangement. The princely hat was only added to it in 1937 to distinguish it from the Haitian flag, when the Liechtenstein team , namely the sports functionary Eduard Alexandrowitsch von Falz-Fein , noticed the identical appearance of the Haiti flag at the 1936 Summer Olympics .
From 1964 to 1986, during the dictatorship of François ( Papa Doc ) and Jean-Claude Duvalier ( Baby Doc ), a flag with a vertical arrangement of the stripes was used, with blue being replaced by black.
