Voodoo Flags

I also love these Haitian Voodoo Flags. This one is a "Funny Siren" that looks like it also has devil horns. The colors and design are superior.These flags are all made of sequins and can be found at El Coqui Gifts .
"Voodoo Flag or Drapo is the finest art unique from Haiti that was originally made only for religious ceremonies as praying cloths. Then in the 1950s, art collectors began acquiring them from the temples. Once the oungans (priests of Voodoo) saw this, they started to use them as a medium to support their societies. "
