The widely celebrated Haitian Flag Day meant to commemorate the culture and heritage of the Haitians all over the world brought about some arguably unwarranted controversy when students at Immokalee High in Collier County showed up to school with shirts with Haitian flags on them.

According to Miami Herald, the Haitian students are said to have disregarded the school district’s Student Code of Conduct which states students are prohibited from wearing or displaying all but four flags: the United States flag, the POW-MIA flag, the State of Florida flag and official school flags.

At least half a dozen students who wore the Haitian flag shirts to school were told to go home and change. When some of them refused, they were sent home.
