Flag of Venezuela

Use: State and war flag, state and naval ensign
Proportion: 2:3
Adopted: March 12, 2006
Design: A horizontal tricolor of yellow, blue and red with the National Coat of Arms on the upper hoist-side of the yellow band and an arc of eight white five-pointed stars centered on 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 with eight stars in the center.

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. Several opposition groups and Venezuelan exiles opposing the current government use the tricolor flag with seven stars adopted in 1954.
