The current Venezuelan flag was officially accepted on August 3, 2006, by the Venezuelan National Assembly as a replacement for the previous flag design, which had been in use since 1906. The flag is a horizontal tricolor of yellow, blue, and red, which were the original colors of the Venezuelan War of Independence in 1811.
The flag is made up of eight five-pointed white stars placed in a circle shape, representing the eight Venezuelan provinces that declared independence from Spain in 1810. Caracas, Cumaná, Barcelona, Margarita, Barcelona, Mérida, Trujillo, and Guyana are the eight provinces. The stars are arranged in a blue rectangle on top of yellow and red fields.
The national flag can be flown with or without a coat of arms in the upper left corner. The coat of arms is based on the one used in the nineteenth century, and it depicts a horseman on a white horse, commemorating freedom leader Simon Bolivar, as well as other national icons.
It's worth noting that the flag's design has evolved over time, with changes to the location and number of stars, as well as the addition of an optional coat of arms. The 2006 design was the first official flag to have the 8 stars in over a century.
