Commemorating June 19, 1865, the day 250,000 enslaved people in Galveston Texas were finally told they were free, Juneteenth marks the official end of slavery in the United States.

A flag inspired by the June 19 event was created by Ben Haith in 1997 and revised in 2000. Its colors-red, white, and blue-are the same as the U.S. flag, emphasizing that those formerly enslaved and their descendants are Americans.
