We present the first measurements of \(\phi \)-meson triangular flow (\(\textit{v}_{3}\)) and quadrangular flow (\(\textit{v}_{4}\)) at mid-rapidity (\(\mid y\mid < 1.0\)) in \(Au+Au\) collisions at \(\sqrt{s}_{NN}=\) 200 GeV. Transverse momentum (\(p_{T}\)) and centrality dependence of \(\textit{v}_{3}(p_{T})\) and \(\textit{v}_{4}(p_{T})\) are shown and compared with corresponding elliptic flow (\(\textit{v}_{2}\)) values. We also present the various higher harmonic ratios and their possible implications.
