When I picked Sans Souci for my business name, I was surprised to see so many associated links, including places that are a part of history and also protected by UNESCO.

The first one I found was the Sanssouci Palace (German: Schloss Sanssouci). It was the former summer palace of Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, in Potsdam near Berlin.

The second listing that I discovered were Haitian monuments dating from the beginning of the 19th century, when Haiti proclaimed its independence, the Palace of Sans Souci, the buildings at Ramiers and, in particular, the Citadel serving as universal symbols of liberty. These were the first monuments to be constructed by the black slaves after they gained their freedom.
