Venezuela Flag Description
three equal horizontal bands of yellow (top), blue, and red with the coat of arms on the hoist side of the yellow band and an arc of eight white five-pointed stars centered in the blue band; the flag retains the three equal horizontal bands and three main colors of the banner of Gran Colombia, the South American republic that broke up in 1830; yellow is interpreted as standing for the riches of the land, blue for the courage of its people, and red for the blood shed in attaining independence; the seven stars on the original flag represented the seven provinces in Venezuela that united in the war of independence; in 2006, President Hugo CHAVEZ ordered an eighth star added to the star arc - a decision that sparked much controversy - to conform with the flag proclaimed by Simon Bolivar in 1827 and to represent the province of Guayana

Venezuela : National Anthem

Glory to the Brave People

Glory to the brave people
which shook off the yoke,
the Law respecting
virtue and honour.

“Down with the chains!”
Cried out the Lord;
and the poor man in his hovel
for freedom implored.
Upon this holy name
trembled in fear
the vile selfishness
that had once triumphed.

Let’s scream out aloud:
Down with oppression!
Faithful countrymen, your strength
lies in your unity;
and from the heavens
the supreme Creator
breathed a sublime spirit
into the nation.

United by bonds
made by heaven,
all America exists
as a Nation;
and if that tyranny
raises its voice,
follow the example
given by Caracas.
