August is a popular month for independence days – summer must be a good time for uprisings. Chad celebrates its independence on August 11th, commemorating independence from France, which was gained in 1960. However, instability has characterized much of the period since independence and despite the promise of oil wealth Chadians as yet have little to celebrate. Show support for Chad on August 11th by wearing your own customized version of one of our Chad Flag and Map T-Shirts.
