Most peculiar decorations you see for rituals at Bali, includes "umbul-umbul" flags. To the Balinese this is a sign of the Gods and their presence during events and occasions. Hindu deities got interweaved into the "Gods", representing "consciousness at highest level". People are guided by them and are able to invoke their presence. During ritual processions see the sugarcanes, carried at the very front, a well-known symbolic for absolute certainty. You'll notice the umbul-umbul, raised high towards the sky, often decorated with the drawing of a NAGA, the mythical snake-dragon and carriage of Avalokiteshvara.
In August 2004, Arti Foundation, Bali (together with the Rainbow Project, Switzerland), produced the Umbul Umbul Festival, and created more space for the creation and exhibition of umbul-umbul, included performances, discussions and processions. See here some welcoming umbul-umbul flags at the Pasar Malam Besar, The Hague, always very go-ahead.
