The Elephant and Macaw Banner

“Brazil’s body lies in America but its soul resides in Africa.”
– Antonio Vieira


Welcome to the official website of The Elephant and Macaw Banner!  Here you can learn all about Gerard van Oost and Oludara and their amazing adventures through sixteenth-century Brazil.

The Elephant and Macaw Banner® is the setting of an award-winning series of fantasy fiction.  The stories are filled with the folklore, history, and culture of colonial-era Brazil.  But the world of The Elephant and Macaw Banner goes far beyond the stories, with artwork, music, and future releases planned of graphic novels and even a video game.

This website provides news and information about the series, as a complement for people wanting to learn more about the world and its characters.

If you are looking for the stories themselves, the “Stories” section of this website contains information on where to find them.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!
