New Haiti tourism logo

 New Haiti tourism logo

The slogan on the above image is wrong! But it was the best logo version I could find.

 New Haiti tourism logo

The Caribbean island of Haiti chose its new logo and slogan from a competition which was launched March, 2012. Haitian graphic design Xavier Delatour was the lucky winner. 

The new Haiti logo was mainly inspired by the Hibiscus or also know as the Choublak flower, which Xavier took full use of and incorporated the words Haiti into the flowers stigma (unofficially the Hibiscus is the national flower of Haiti). The sun was also incorporated into the design which plays well with the dots of the ï and i. It also is a symbol for life, warmth and fun, which hopefully attracts the tourists back into a country that many of us got to know after the earthquake in January 2010.

The new slogan is called “experience it!” which hopefully lots of us will do.

The principal belief in Haitian Voodoo is that deities called Lwa (or Loa) are subordinates to a God called Bondyè, This supreme being does not intercede in human affairs, and it is to the Lwa that Voodoo worship is directed. Other characteristics of Voodoo include veneration of the dead and protection against evil witchcraft. Haitian Voodoo shares many similarities with other faiths of the African diaspora, including the Louisiana Voodoo of New Orleans, Santería and Arará of Cuba, and Candomblé and Umbanda of Brazil. A Haitian Voodoo temple is called an Hounfour.
Voodoo paraphernalia, Port-au-Prince, Haiti. In Haitian Voodoo Sèvis Lwa in Creole (“Service to the Lwa”), there are strong elements from the Bakongo of Central Africa and the Igbo and Yoruba of Nigeria, although many other African nations have contributed to the liturgy of the Sèvis Lwa. A significant portion of Haitian Voodoo often overlooked by scholars until recently is the input from the Kongo. The entire northern area of Haiti is heavily influenced by Kongo practices. In northern Haiti, it is often called the Kongo Rite or Lemba, from the Lemba rituals of the Loango area and Mayombe. In the south, Kongo influence is called Petwo (Petro). Many lwa (a Kikongo term) are of Kongo origin, such as Basimbi, Lemba, etc. photography via tianamarkova.com nationalgeographic.com blackraingroup.org

Tap-tap vehicles serve as public transportation in Haiti. They are private, operate over fixed routes, departing only when full. Tap-taps are decorated with bright and shiny colors and with a lot of fancy designed elements. There are scenes from the Bible, Christian slogans, TV stars or famous football players often painted on a tap-tap body. Tap-tap name comes from sound of taps on the metal bus body signifying a passenger’s request to be dropped off. Photography by Jan Sochor
