Fils Lafleur in 2009

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.
