Born in 1965 in Port Salut, on the southern coast of Haiti, Fils Lafleur began making flags in 1987.  He has exhibited in New Orleans and Santa Fe.  A mural consisting of 32 of his flags depicting the different vévé symbols of Vodou was on display on the wall of the International Airport in Port-au-Prince when I visited in 2014.  I  understand that Fils Lafleur passed away soon after that.
