French term or phrase: Convention de La Hava
English name for this city?

Are you sure
Explanation:
it's 'Convention de la Hava' and not 'Convention de La Haye', which would be 'Convention of The Hague' or 'The Hague Convention' ?

La Hava doesn't make sense to me...unless you would be referring to a convention in La Havane (Havana).

Several famous conventions were (are) held in The Hague (The Netherlands), a.o. in 1899 & 1907 regarding Laws & Customs of War on Land and in 1954 regarding the Protection of Cultural Property...

Thanks very much - with this in mind I was able to find the exact date of the Convention referred to. Yes, it was the Hague. I'm baffled by the spelling error (repeated twice), especially because in Italian it is l'Aja. Who knows! Thanks everyone.

Havana


Explanation:
Looks like grande typo to me. Can't think of any city name beginning with (LA) HAVA that's not followed by NA. Spanish name is LA HABANA, English HAVANA, Cuba. Apart from that I only found HAVA in a few dozen links, without LA, and not even a city name. Hope it's what you're after, cheers :)

le Havre?


Explanation:
I agree with the previous answer, that this is possibly a typo of some kind. La Hava isn't a French word (that I know of)and if it is a proper name, I'm surprised that they didn't "frenchisize" the spelling, as is often (but not always) done.
