The Meaning & History of the Venezuelan Flag

The inspiration and design for the Venezuelan Flag came from the instigator of South American Independence, General Francisco Gabriel de Miranda (1750-1816)

It was then adopted by the Republics of Ecuador, Colombia, and Venezuela

These three countries formed a confederation from 1822 until 1830 when they each became separate nations

The flag has remained the same for the three sovereign states with only slight differences distinguishing one flag from the others

The Venezuelan flag was adopted on April 20, 1836
