Flag of Venezuela

Flag of Venezuela

Venezuelan flag consists of a horizontal tricolor of yellow, blue, and red. The colors are taken from the flag of the former federation Gran Colombia, whose member was Venezuela along with Colombia and Ecuador from 1819 to 1830. Unlike the other former members, the width of stripes on Venezuelan flag is equal. In the middle of the blue stripe, an arc composed of eight five-pointed stars is located and the upper part in the left side of the flag bears a coat of arms (in case of national flag). The stars represent the seven Venezuelan provinces, which signed an agreement with the dissolution of Gran Colombia. The eighth star, which was added on the flag in 2006, is supposed to represent province Esequiba, which is located in the territory of Guyana and which Venezuela is claiming.
