Once little known outside of Haiti, Vodou flags (drapo Vodou), dazzling in color and imagery, have become popular commodities in the international art market. Works by such notable Haitian artists as Silva Joseph, Antoine Oleyant, and Yves Telemak now grace the walls of museums, art galleries, and private homes throughout the world.

The fascinating, colorful collection of drapo Vodou included in this book reveals the importance of Vodou flags in the Haitian culture. Shimmering with sequins and reflected light, they capture the attention of Vodou practitioners and art lovers alike.

In showcasing the Vodou flags and the artists who create them, this book also offers a striking revelation of the gods (Iwa) that inhabit the Vodou spirit world.

Patrick Arthur Polk serves as the museum scientist and archivist for the UCLA Folklore and Mythology Program.
