    Venezuela Flag history
    Venezuela Flag
    Venezuela Flag history
    The Venezuela flag is based on the flag designed by Francisco de Miranda for his unsuccessful attempt to liberate Venezuela and later adopted by the National Congress of 1811. This original design was first flown on March 12, 1806 at Jacmel, Haiti as Miranda's expedition prepared to make the final leg of its voyage to Venezuela. The flag was first flown over Venezuelan soil at La Vela de Coro, on August 3. Until August 3, 2006, Flag Day was celebrated in Venezuela on March 12. Since 2006 it has been celebrated on August 3. In 2006, on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Venezuela's first flag, an eighth star was added to the existing seven stars in the middle of the flag to represent the historical province of Guayana, one of the Provinces of Venezuela at the time of the declaration of independence. The details of the coat of arms were also modified on that occasion and those changes include a white horse galloping left instead of right, a bow and arrow representing Venezuela’s indigenous people and a machete to represent the labor of workers.
