This Vodou flag was designed for an altar dedicated to St. James Major. St. James Major belongs to the group of Ogou spirits whose name derives from Ogun, the Yoruba god of iron. In the Vodou pantheons Ogou is a hot-tempered warrior who fights for justice. He rules over all things made of iron, including vehicles.
