From my personal collection, this unusual flag with a shield design has been exhibited in several museums, including a 2004 show at the Boca Raton Museum of Art in Boca Raton, Florida. The snake in blue faces an egg, a white pure food that is his favorite. He is a symbol of fertility and richness of crops, a great respected father whose name comes first in songs of Vodou.
