Flag of Venezuela
|Design||A horizontal tricolor of yellow, blue and red with an arc of eight white five-pointed stars centered in the blue band. |
The current flag of Venezuela was introduced in 2006. The basic design includes a horizontal tricolor of yellow, blue, and red, dating to the original flag introduced in 1811, in the Venezuelan War of Independence. Further modifications have involved including a set of stars, multiple changes to the placement and number of stars and inclusion of an optional coat of arms at the upper-left corner. 
According to the current interpretation: yellow represents all the gold found in the Venezuelan land, blue represents the seas on Venezuela's shores, the rivers that run through, and the sky above and red represents the blood spilled for Venezuela's independence.
