Wikipedia describes voodoo as such: “Haitian Vodou (also known as Voodoo) is a religion that first appeared in Haiti. It is a mixture of Roman Catholic rituals introduced during the French colonial period, and African beliefs, with roots in the Yoruba, Kongo and Dahomey mythology.”

In addition to being unusual and beautiful works of art, voodoo flags are implements of this religion. Originally created to represent spirits in a voodoo temple, they have now become popular decorative items representing the island's culrue and heritage. The "drapeau," or flag, was designed to communicate respect and honor heralding a spirit's coming or its possession of a worshipper. The flags serve to mediate between the profane and the sacred at ceremonies.

 

Some common spirits or "loas" represented on the flags include:

AGWE: Sovereign of the sea including all flora and fauna and ships. which sail on the sea.
BACALOU - Haitian voodoo evil spirit depicted by the skull and crossbones.
DAMBALLA(H) - father of the loa and humankind.
ERZULIE - Haitian voodoo goddess of beauty, dancing, flowers, jewels, love and luxury. Married to Damballa, Agwe and OGOUN - She is depicted as a water snake. Also called Mami Wata in African mythology.
SIRENE - Protector of all things aquatic: plants, animals, and ships. Very beautiful, she can also be tricky.
ST. JACQUES / OGOUN - traditional warrior figure, has more recently come to represent political warring.
ZAKA - Loa of agriculture and a gentle simple farmer. Greatly respected as a hard worker.
